Why is Mars Red? Mars is the closest planet to the asteroid belt, the orbit of the second sun. And because of its position, it is very naturally to be affected by that sun more than any other planet in the solar system.

mars's ground ~ at times it even snows, martian snowflakes are made of carbon dioxide rather than water & thought to be about the size of red blood cells, atmosphere is too thin to easily support life as we know it + is too cold for liquid water to exist for any length of time, dust that covers the surface is fine like talcum powder, beneath that layer of dust, the martian crust consists mostly of volcanic basalt rock, the centre likely has a solid core composed of iron, nickel, sulfur.
