Mars’ Gale crater, spanning 96 miles (154 kilometers) in diameter, sits a few degrees south of the Martian equator. Rising from Gale’s center is Mount Sharp, a 3-mile-high (5 km) mountain of layered sediment. Studying the rocks and soil here could reveal if Mars was ever capable of supporting life.
Wish you weighed less? Visit the Red Planet. Because Mars is so much smaller, its gravity makes you weigh only 3/8 what you do on Earth.
Mars is cold, dry and rocky. Extra moisturizer and sturdy shoes would be a good idea, plus oxygen for those of you who breathe.
