Greetings from Mars
Since plans for conquering the Red Planet are becoming more serious, we should get acquainted with the possible view from up there. The distance between Mars and the Earth is about 50 milion miles. One martian year lasts approximately 687 terrestrial days, but one day is just 37 minutes longer than our 24h standard. Don’t let it fool you: Mars is not a pleasant environment at all. There are numerous aspects that make us think twice before we decide to move there.
