What doesn’t seem cool about Mars? It has red dirt, is the fourth planet from the sun and has some dried up river beds. What more could one possibly want for such a fun experience on the red planet? Not to bring you down or anything, but it turns out it’s not really such a fun planet. Yes, there are many aspects what would make it exhilarating, but just look out for some of the negative effects lurking around.
MARS WILL BE FUN TO JUMP AROUND ON
Thanks to Mars having less gravity on Earth, humans will weigh 62% less than they do the home planet. Obese people everywhere are already booking their flights for dreams of a happy, lightweight life. The mass on the red planet is 1/10th the mass of Earth, so now you and the planet can celebrate your low weight together. In addition to that, gravity on mars is significantly less. 62.5% to be exact. As you may know, gravity is that thing that makes you have weight. With less of it, you’ll feel light as a feather making jumping around Mars a game in itself.
EXTREME TEMPERATURES, ON THE OTHER HAND, ARE NOT FUN
Having a fun planet to jump around won’t do you much good if you’re constantly battling an array of extreme temperatures. It’s high is 70 degrees, which in itself, sounds quite lovely. That being said, it can get as cold as -225 degrees Fahrenheit (-153 degrees Celsius) on Mars. This all depends on how far the planet is from the Sun of course. If the temperature doesn’t kill you, the atmosphere surely will. Humans tend to need oxygen to live. A normal breath on the planet will give you a cocktail of various gases with the only 1/5th being oxygen. It would take 14,500 breaths on the planet to get the same breath one would have on Earth.
STILL A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT
Don’t let all these potentially deadly facts deter you from a vacation. The cold desert planet still has many nice features. Just like Earth, you’ll have seasons, polar ice caps, canyons, volcanoes, no water and possibly deadly Martians. If that doesn’t sound like a good time then you must hate fun more than Hillary Clinton.
