Mars' Moons

Discovery and Missions

Mars was first seen by Galileo through a telescope. This planet has two moons which are Phobos and Deimos. They were both discovered in 1877 by Asaph Hall. Interestingly, while Mars was named after the Roman god of War, its moons are named after the sons of the Roman god of War. Over the years, there have been 43 missions to Mars and only 18 have succeeded. One of the rovers, Curiosity rover also known as Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), was launched in 2011. It is still exploring the Martian surface to this day.

Mars: The Red Planet

Mars is known as "the Red Planet" because of its rusty red color. It is the 2nd smallest planet in the solar system and the 4th planet from the Sun. Its distance from the Sun is 141,600,000 miles. As one of the terrestrial planets, Mars is also home to the tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons. This mountain is 3 times the height of Mount Everest. Like Earth, Mars also has north and south poles. They are both permanently covered by ice. Some of the ice is frozen water and others are what we call dry ice.
