Mars: the Red Planet. It has intrigued us as far back as the Babylonians, who called Mars Negral. The Egyptians were the ones to give Mars a name based on color, the “Red One.” The Romans named their god of war Mars. Over the next almost 2000 years, numerous astronomers did research and observed the planet trying to understand its atmosphere and what may be on the surface. Rover landings in 1997 and 2004 gave us the first up close look at Mars’ surface and is the basis for all the skepticism we have about the possibility of life on the Red Planet (NASA.com). Mars’ surface is not exactly the nicest place to live. With low temperatures reaching -143 degrees Celsius at the poles, it can be rough keeping warm; however, the highs can reach up …show more content…
Naeff is what we call them; why that name, we are not sure, but it is easy and fun to say. His stature is smaller than humans; typically, the maximum height reaches four feet and a maximum weight of 70-100 pounds. Naeff is not too different from us humans, but with the stark differences in life on Earth and life on Mars, he has some modified organ systems and even has a couple of organs not seen in us humans. Looking at Naeff at first glance, you would think he was a human just like all of us, but the best way to see our differences is to take a look inside and see how Naeff’s body functions compared to …show more content…
In humans, the urinary system acts as a system to filter out waste products and remove them from the body. Its major organs are the urinary bladder, urethra, ureters, and kidneys. For Naeff, the urinary system works slightly different due to not only the limited water supply, but also the insoluble salts found in those water supplies. The first difference that is noticeable is the size of the kidneys. The kidneys have numerous functions; they filter blood plasma, excrete toxic wastes, regulate blood volume and pressure, detoxifying free radicals, and the list goes on (Saladin 890). For Naeff, the kidneys are going to be enlarged so that the kidneys have more area to filter the water Naeff may drink and rid of the salts in it. Another important function of the kidneys that aids in the quality of life that Naeff experiences is that they secrete erythropoietin; this stimulates the production of red blood cells which supports the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood (Saladin 890). This is important because of Mars’ carbon dioxide atmosphere; Naeff needs as much oxygen-carrying capacity as possible because oxygen is what keeps him

Mars is an example of a frontier in Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles ,but in our world frontier have been conquered and some still remain to this day. An example of one of these frontiers is the European colonization of Africa. One correlation between the Martian Chronicles and European colonization of Africa would be the The Sahara Desert and space both are giant hindrance and impassable without the proper equipment.
When one hears the word Mercury they think of the beautiful red planet neighbored to Earth in the galaxy, but did you know that the planet is named after the Greek God, Hermes. The Romans named the planets after the most important gods so the fastest planet was named after the fastest god. Hermes, also known as Mercury, is the son of Zeus and nymph Maia. He is the god of commerce, athletes, trickery and inventions and is known for numerous talents and being apart of multiple greek stories. Hermes was a very helpful god who was known for his thieving, and his speed.
Astronomy: Discovery of Uranus by William Herschel in 1781 Before the discovery of Uranus by William Herschel the world knew about the five existing planets that were able to be observed by the naked eye. These planets are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The earth was not considered in these planets because earth was previously thought to be the center of the universe where all celestial bodies revolved around it. William Herschel began at a young age to ponder the heavens and what was out there, he used small telescopes but was soon frustrated because of their lack of power to see much further than the naked eye. Herschel was motivated to build larger telescopic tools to look deeper into the cosmos.
Neptune, named after the Roman god of the sea, is the furthest planet from the sun, and the smallest gas planet in diameter. Neptune's mass is much larger than its size though, it is the third largest planet in mass, but the fourth largest in size. It has a circumference of 96,685 miles. It takes 165 years to travel around the sun. That's 34 years older than the recorded for longest living person.
I researched about William Herschel, who was a conductor, organist, composer and music teacher. William Herschel knew the stars well and was always curious as to what was beyond the Earth. He had built himself a homemade telescope and enjoyed viewing the stars from it. As he was observing the stars one night he noticed an object that he could not clarify what it was. Other astronomers had seen this object, but never really observed how different it was.
The digestive system is responsible for chemically and mechanically breaking down food and includes organs such as, mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, rectum, anus, and additional accessory organs. These organs all aid in the breakdown of food. Food is broken down mechanically by chewing and churning in the stomach, and chemically by acidic enzymes in the stomach and in the small intestine which receives enzymes from the pancreas that are specifically designed for the breakdown of nutrients. Once the food and nutrients are broken down, the excretory system removes whatever the body decides is waste by filtering blood in the nephrons of the kidneys and turning it into urine which is then collected in the bladder and removed from the body when the bladder is
Pluto is a dwarf planet that is located in the Kuiper belt. It was the first object to be found in the Kuiper belt. If you were to look into the night sky and find the constellation of Sagittarius, Pluto is located in about the center of it. Originally considered a planet when it was found by Clyde Tombaugh and named by Venetia Burney. Pluto is named after the Roman god of the Underworld.

The name Lepus means "the hare" in Latin. It is depicted as a hare being chased by the hunter Orion or by his hunting dogs. represented by the constellations Canis Major and Canis minor. Lepus was first cataloged by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century.
Mars Debate Essay Is it a really good idea to live to live in Mars? Who would even live in a dry and dangerous desert? There really is nothing despite the fact that there’s water beneath Mars, but it might not have anything of use. There is also the weather which can kill people. First off, we shouldn’t really go to Mars.
Elimination covers wide ranges of aspect, such as urine, faeces, diarrhoea, emptying a catheter bag, vomiting etc. According to Perry, Peterson, and Potter (2003), normal elimination of the body wastes through the gastrointestinal and genitourinary tracts is a basic function that most people take for granted. Therefore, when either system fail, normal elimination does not take place. Elimination of liquid and solid waste products is normal routine and ordinary, except a change in habits or illness arises. Changes in bowel or bladder may be signs of illness or may be change of habit (drinking or eating).
SPU PO3 – The Martian Nina Groenveld | VT4A Making water using hydrazine: In the movie, astronaut Mark Watney used hydrazine from the rocket fuel and separated it into nitrogen and oxygen. The formula is N2H4 → N2 + 2H2. After this he burned the hydrogen with oxygen to make water. The formula is 2H2 + O2 → 2H2O. Martian soil:
Greek mythology’s effect on science was enormous; it involved the naming of planets, periodic table of elements and even constellations. The solar system’s planets and moons were named after Greek mythological characters. However, it was also given Roman version of it. “Sun, the center of our solar system was named after
