But after decades of study using orbiters, landers, and rovers, scientists have revealed Mars as a dynamic, windblown landscape that could—just maybe—harbor microbial life beneath its rusty surface even today. With a radius of 2, miles, Mars is the seventh largest planet in our solar system and about half the diameter of Earth. Its surface gravity is Recent NASA exploratory expeditions revealed some of the red planet's biggest mysteries.
