The New Mars

  • Markus Hotakainen

But Mars had become another world entirely.

John Barnes: In the Hall of the Martian King (2003)

The information gained on Mars in the past 10 years is more abundant than all the knowledge accumulated during the preceding millennia. However, this does not mean that we know Mars through and through. With just a hint of exaggeration it can be said to be typical for research made with space probes that the information sent by a craft launched to solve one question stirs up ten new questions. The Red Planet still harbors lots of secrets and riddles on both large and small scales. However, in the beginning of the twenty-first century we already have quite a comprehensive general view of the world next to our own.
