Mars

Mars is the planet which has most stimulated our imagination regarding intelligent extraterrestrial life. Today we know that the planet is a desert and cannot support any form of life more complex than bacteria. However its charm remains unchanged; no other planet has been granted such a great number of space missions in order to study its characteristics. Currently there are 3 probes orbiting around it, 2 robots on its surface which continuously collect data and it has been planned that humans will set foot on the Red Planet by 2030. Credits: NASA, J.
