Caption: Martian rock. Artwork of a Martian rock being held in an astronaut's hand. The Martian atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide and surface temperatures are well below freezing, requiring astronauts to wear heated spacesuits with air supplies. The gravity is about one third of that on Earth, and Mars is a desert world with no surface water. The larger, closer Martian moon, Phobos, is at upper right.
