Astronaut on Mars. Computer artwork of an astronaut exploring the surface of the planet Mars. The astronaut's visor has a space shuttle reflected in it. The suit is necessary as the Martian environment is inhospitable for human explorers. The atmospheric pressure is only 0.6% that of Earth's and the average daily temperature is below freezing. In addition, 95% of the atmosphere consists of unbreathable carbon dioxide. A manned mission to Mars has been a long standing goal of the space community.
