We've always had a fascination with Mars here at WhimsySpace. There's so many fun (and terrible) movies about the planet, incredible book series, and compared to the rest of the planets...just a lot of good sci fi and interest in colonization. If there's a planet we'll be able to live on next, Mars will likely be it. So we should do our best to know more about it!
Mars is smaller than Earth, by a pretty decent margin. If you weighed 100lbs on Earth, Mars is small enough (and thus has weaker gravity) that you would only weigh 38lbs there. Talk about easy backflips! While this could be fun for awhile, the low gravity would actually cause your muscles to degrade, as they're not being used as much as you need them here on Earth. Long term, it could be fairly unhealthy!
While plans to live on Mars are varied and have different amounts of plausibility, it would be no easy task. In addition to mastering the environment, we would need to learn to adapt to the low gravity and protect ourselves from higher radiation. Mars used to have liquid water, and still has a fair amount of it frozen at the poles and likely below ground as well. Were we to attempt to mine for it, or even live underground in various lava tube systems, it might be safer than we think. Still dangerous! But relatively safer. These would be the areas likely to harbor life, if any is still hanging out to be found as well.
Mars is also host to the largest volcano in the solar system! If you were to hike to the very top of it, you would actually have walked above the Martian atmosphere into space itself, as Olympus Mons is 3 times higher than Mt. Everest and about as wide as the state of Arizona! So I hope you brought some quality hiking boots!
Nap on the dunes of Mars while keeping cool with that water ice that may just harbor life, with the Martian Pillow! A planet full of exquisite geography and perhaps even the seed for life on Earth, Mars has long left an indelible mark in global culture. Show your love for the 4th rock from the sun.
