  • Life on Mars?

    Posted by Rachel Daw at 11/20/2013 10:30:00 AM
    In class we watched a video of the Maven launch to Mars!  Over the next several months, the Maven will be studying Mars and trying to determine what happened to Mars's atmosphere that may have once held in warmth and water on the planet.  If Mars still had an atmosphere like the Earth's, do you think it would be possible to live on MarsWhy or why not?  Would you want to live on MarsWhy or why not?
