The size of mars is 2,106 miles across and earth is 3,959 miles across
The rotation on mars is 24 hours and 39 minutes.
It orbits around the sun every 1.88 earth years or every 687 days
Mars atmosphere is one percent of earth so it doesn't protect the planet from radiation
In winter the temperature can get down to -192 degrees at the poles and summer days can get to an awsome 70 degrees
Mars has two moons,phobos and deimos
