Phobos The Doomed Moon Of Mars.

What Is Phobos?

Phobos is one of the two moons of Mars, And it is doomed!

Why Is Phobos Doomed?

The long shallow groves of Phobos are early signs of a structural failure (basically the "bones" Phobos Are Failing). The gravity of Mars is pulling in Phobos, NOTE: Phobos will NOT crash into Mars, It will disintegrate before it hits Mars. Phobos will be pulled apart in 30-50 Million Years.

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System, after Mercury. Named after the Roman god of war, it is often referred to as the "Red Planet" because the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance. Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth. The rotational period and seasonal cycles of Mars are likewise similar to those of Earth, as is the tilt that produces the seasons. Mars is the site of Olympus Mons, the largest

Hey There!

Ok, so I have not made a post in a while but do you remember the poll called "is mars really red?" Well out of the 2 of you that voted you voted yes so now I have to go through the whole boring part about mars's surface and how its the iron in the rocks that when they "meet up" with the "air" the iron turnes into a powder and trurnes orangie red and floates up. Oh and by the way mars's colour is an orangie-gray-brown. But hey thats all the boring stuff so ya thats the end of that.







Goodbye for now.

Rover Time On Mars

Time on Mars:

Curiosity: 1306 Sols

Opportunity: 4463 Sols

Spirit: 2208 Sols

Sojourner: 83 Sols

Spirit Rover

Spirit (and its twin, Opportunity) are six-wheeled, solar-powered robots standing 1.5 meters (4.9 ft) high, 2.3 meters (7.5 ft) wide and 1.6 meters (5.2 ft) long and weighing 180 kilograms (400 lb). Six wheels on a rocker-bogie system enable mobility over rough terrain. Each wheel has its own motor. The vehicle is steered at front and rear and is designed to operate safely at tilts of up to 30 degrees. Maximum speed is 5 centimetres per second (2.0 in/s);[18] 0.18 kilometers per hour (0.11 mph), although average speed is about 1 centimetre per second (0.39 in/s). Both Spirit and Opportunity have pieces of the fallen World Trade Center's metal on them that were "turned into shields to protect cables on the drilling mechanisms".

Solar arrays generate about 140 watts for up to four hours per Martian day (sol) while rechargeable lithium ion batteries store energy for use at night. Spirit's onboard computer uses a 20 MHz RAD6000 CPU with 128 MB of DRAM, 3 MB of EEPROM, an…
