Living On Mars
Mars is the next great adventure. It is the fourth planet from the sun. Due to the finely-grained iron oxide dust covering the planet giving it a reddish color, it has earned the nickname “The Red Planet”. It is one of the most explored planets in our solar system with NASA making plans to use it to replace Earth one day. It has two moons, Phobos and Deimos. Its thin atmosphere is made up of carbon dioxide, argon, nitrogen, oxygen, and very small amounts of water vapor. A year on Mars is 687 Earth days, while each day is 24.6 hours.

Denial - Norway When Karl steps off the plane, the thin layer of frost under his feet cracks. The weather is eerily merciful, the midnight sun is right above the horizon, but honestly, he has no idea if it’s rising or setting.
