Caption: Mars astronaut. Computer artwork of an astronaut holding a sample of Martian rock. The red-orange colour of the Martian rocks is due to a high iron oxide content. Part of a flag appears in the background, and the Sun is reflected in the astronaut's helmet. Mars is much further from the Sun than Earth. The Martian atmosphere is mostly carbon dioxide and surface temperatures are well below freezing. Martian astronauts will have to breathe their own air supply and wear heated spacesuits on the surface of Mars. Mars is a rocky desert world and has no surface water. The gravity is about one third of that on Earth. There are plans to send manned expeditions to Mars during the 21st century.
