Here Are 31 Reasons Why Planet Mars is So Amazing

By | August 5, 2014

The red planet is nothing short of amazing. Mars, one of our closest neighbors has been one of humanity’s most difficult feats. We’d like to learn so much about it, but we have limited resources and technology. Although Mars is our neighbor, we still don’t have the capability to reach it ourselves.

That’s why we’ve employed all sorts of technology including the Mars Rover, to go and explore the Red Planet so that we may understand it a little more. Upon seeing these pictures, you’ll realize how breathtaking and beautiful Mars really is. If anything, it resembles Earth quite a bit. Take a moment to really look at these pictures and keep in mind that these pictures are 100% alien.
