Martian landscape. Artwork of a Martian landscape. The surface of the landscape shown is marked by craters caused by asteroid or meteor impacts. Mars is a rocky desert world with no surface water. The orange colour of the rocks is due to a high content of iron oxides. The Martian atmosphere, less dense than Earth's, is mostly carbon dioxide. Surface temperatures are well below freezing. The gravity is about one third of that on Earth.
