Why scientist are so fascinated by mars?

There are some points which tells us why.

  • Mars contain thin oxygen in its atmosphere.
  • Scientists have found traces of water on mars.
  • Mars is ideal, it comes in 4th position so temperature is not too high nor too low, pretty similar to earth.
  • Since mars is near to earth, it takes around 150-300 days to reach it, whereas Jupiter takes 600-700 days to reach it.
  • Although mars gravity is less but its gravity is more than twice compared to moon.
  • As distance is less cost of a trip also becomes less, and it makes easy to study the planet.

One thing human beings need to live on any planet is oxygen. If oxygen is present on any planets the chances of finding water increases.

Although much research since then suggests chemical rather than biological explanations for these structures. There are sci-fi novels those who tells us that this may be the case.

We believe that the creator of humans or ape may come from another universe. Maybe they created the life on earth to see how they have acted when the life was initiated on their planet. There are many, many possibilities and we do not know that any of this is true or not.
