Mars: The Red Planet
If you have been following NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover, then you know it has had quite an eventful couple of months! It has recently discovered an odd-shaped iron meteorite that some likened to “an alien egg,” viewed spectacularly layered rock formations and, just last week, slabs of rock cross-hatched with shallow ridges were discovered that likely originated as cracks in drying mud. This makes it a perfect time to explore our new collection, Mars: The Red Planet.
Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System after Mercury. Named after the Roman God of War, it is often referred to as the “Red Planet” because the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance. 50 years of space exploration have brought us closer to understanding Mars, but is it as hospitable as many experts think?
This newly curated collection is made up of eight programs, totaling just over six hours of content all about Mars. Perfect for all age ranges, the content covers everything from whether or not there is water on Mars to the likelihood of life on Mars to what it would take for humans to colonize Mars.
So, why not make it a night of star gazing and dreaming of far away galaxies? Grab some popcorn and get ready to binge on facts and speculations about the Red Planet. Find the full collection here, only on CuriosityStream.
