Caption: Asteroid near Mars, computer artwork. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun. It is scarred by around 43,000 impact craters that have a diameter of over 5 kilometres. There are far fewer craters on Mars compared with the Moon (despite being nearer the asteroid belt) because Mars has a thin carbon dioxide atmosphere, which provides some protection. The carbon dioxide atmosphere forms ice at the poles (white) and the orange colour is due to the iron oxides in the rocks.
