      Orbital Data for the Planets & Dwarf Planets Planet Semimajor Axis Orbital Period (yr) Orbital Speed (km/s) Orbital on average. Orbital periods are also given in units of the Earth's orbital period, which is a year. The eccentricity (e) is a number which measures how elliptical orbits are. If e = 0, the orbit is a circle.   1. PROPERTIES & PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF MARS Discussant: Ma. Hazel L. Llorando BSED 2-R 2. The Red Planet • Mars is the fourth planet from the sun. Befitting the red planet's bloody color, the Romans named it after their god of Romans copied the ancient Greeks, who also named the planet after their god of war, Ares.

      Venus was one of the five planets—along with Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn—known in ancient times, and its motions were observed and studied for centuries prior to the invention of advanced astronomical instruments. Its appearances were recorded by the Babylonians, who equated it with the goddess Ishtar, about bce, and it also is mentioned prominently in the . Specific Objectives of an Early Mars Orbiter Probe. Post-Voyager Proposals for Planetary Exploration Projects. Estimated Costs for Mars Program, January Mars Program, January Lunar and Planetary Exploration Budget Plan, FY 20 Alternative Mission Modes Examined for Viking

      Mars has an orbit with a semimajor axis of astronomical units ( million kilometers), and an eccentricity of The planet orbits the Sun in days and travels AU in doing so, making the average orbital speed 24 km/s. The eccentricity .   Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and orbits the Sun at an average distance of approximately million miles ( million km). Mars rotates on its axis, completing one revolution every hours. The axis of Mars is tilted at 25 degrees and 12 minutes relative to its orbital plane about the Sun.

Physical Data for Well-Studied Dwarf Planets; Well-Studied Dwarf Planet Diameter (km) Diameter (Earth = 1) Mass (Earth = 1) Mean Density (g/cm 3) Rotation Period (d). The atmosphere thus can support high clouds, generally in the morning.

(See Table 1 for Mars's physical and orbital data.) Internally, the planet's structure follows the characteristic crustmantle‐core structure. The planet's low mean density of g/cm 3 suggests a relatively small iron core.

No evidence exists for current tectonic activity. Mars, fourth planet in the solar system in order of distance from the Sun and seventh in size and mass. It is a periodically conspicuous reddish object in the night sky. There are intriguing clues that billions of years ago Mars was even more Earth-like than today.

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System after English, Mars carries the name of the Roman god of war and is often referred to as the 'Red Planet '. The latter refers to the effect of the iron oxide prevalent on Mars' surface, which gives it a reddish appearance distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to the naked l period: d, ( yr; sols).

Key Facts & Summary. The average orbital data for the planets are summarized in Table (Ceres is the largest of the asteroids, now considered a dwarf planet.) According to Kepler’s laws, Mercury must have the shortest orbital period (88 Earth-days); thus, it has the highest orbital speed, averaging 48 kilometers per second.

This dynamic planet has seasons, polar ice caps and weather and canyons and extinct volcanoes, evidence of an even more active past. Mars is one of the most explored bodies in our solar system, and it's the only planet where we've sent rovers to roam the alien currently has three spacecraft in orbit, one rover and one lander on the surface and another.

Mars has the largest dust storms in the solar system. They can last for months and cover the entire planet. The seasons are extreme because its elliptical (oval-shaped) orbital path around the Sun is more elongated than most other planets in the solar system. On Mars the Sun appears about half the size as it does on Earth.

Earth's moon is 2, miles (3, km) wide, about one-fourth of Earth's diameter. Our planet has one moon, while Mercury and Venus have none and all the other planets in our solar system have two.

Channels, valleys and gullies are found all over Mars, and suggest that liquid water might have flowed across the planet's surface in recent times. Some channels can. Sun, Planet and Satellite Data Historical Data. Key: Name Name of the planet or satellite.

Physical features closely resembling shorelines, gorges, riverbeds and islands suggest that great rivers once marked the planet. Temperature and Pressure The average recorded temperature on Mars is ° C (° F) with a maximum temperature of 20° C (68° F) and a minimum of.

The red planet Mars, named for the Roman god of war, has long been an omen in the night sky. And in its own way, the planet’s rusty red surface tells a story of destruction. The data for Mars presented the greatest challenge to this view and that eventually encouraged Kepler to give up the popular idea.

Kepler’s first law states that every planet moves along an ellipse, with the Sun located at a focus of the ellipse. An ellipse is defined as the set of all points such that the sum of the distance from each point Author: William Moebs, Samuel J.

Summary From Before: All orbits can be understood by Newtons Gravitational Force Law Orbital characteristics depend only on the distance from the sun, not the mass of the object Relation between orbital Period and Distance from The Sun Mercury: A = AU P = yr Venus: A = P = Mars: A = P = Jupiter: A = P = The planet Mars has been a subject of wonder for millennia, as attested by its place in mythology, by later speculation about its canals, and by the scientific and public excitement over the Viking mission.

Although the scientific literature about the planet is voluminous, no comprehensive treatment of the results of modern spacecraft exploration has yet been made available.

The International Astronomical Union has defined. a planet as a celestial body that. is in orbit around the Sun, has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equlibrium (nearly round) shape.Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Solar System and the second-smallest solid planet.

Mars is a cold terrestrial planet with polar ice caps of frozen water and carbon dioxide. It has the largest volcano in the Solar System, and some very large impact craters. Mars is named after the mythological Roman god of war because it appears of red color. Space probes such as the Adjectives: Martian.

The average orbital data for the planets are summarized in Table \(\PageIndex{1}\). (Ceres is the largest of the asteroids, now considered a dwarf planet.) According to Kepler’s laws, Mercury must have the shortest orbital period (88 Earth-days); thus, it has the highest orbital speed, averaging 48 kilometers per second.
