The scope of the book is ambitious, covering virtually every aspect of Martian surface geology while also touching. The arrival of the United States' Mariner 4 spacecraft in , which took pictures revealing impact craters and a generally barren landscape, was the final nail in the coffin of the idea that Mars could be inhabited by higher forms of life, or that any canal features existed.

Richard's book can not answer all of these questions. What is discussed is the face of Mars and other structures on the surface of Mars (pyramids) and the analysis behind the pronouncements.

Carr. The surface of Mars is weathered due to extreme temperature changes and from frost. There is a little water, about 1 percent, in the Martian rocks. This has broken the rocks down into fine particles of soil that can get whipped up into dust storms.

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System, being larger than only English, Mars carries the name of the Roman god of war and is often referred to as the "Red Planet".

The latter refers to the effect of the iron oxide prevalent on Mars's surface, which gives it a reddish appearance distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to. Mars has a radius of km or mi being twice as small as Earth.

Mars is a terrestrial planet that consists of minerals containing silicon and oxygen, metals, and other elements that typically make up rock. The surface of Mars is primarily composed of tholeiitic basalt, although parts are more silica-rich than typical basalt and may be similar to andesitic rocks on Earth or silica glass.
