Wheather on Mars
« on: August 25, 2012, 10:26:44 AM »
On this link we can see the atmospheric conditions on MARS:

Atmosphere on Mars is very light and its average pressure is between 7 and 9 hPa versus on Earth we have 1013 hPa at sea level.  Also we can see that on the day of the pic, there was winds about 90 Km/h (25m/s).

Also the gravity on Mars is lower than the Earth, the Martian gravity is 38% of Earth's, thus its atmosphere is higher than Earth's.  Its composition consists of 95% carbon dioxide, 3% nitrogen, 1.6% argon and contains traces of oxygen and water.
