Mars: Take-away messages Although smaller than Earth, Mars and Earth are similar in many ways. Mars and Earth have similar interiors, although Mars has
no liquid outer core, and so no magnetic field. Mars geology is/was formed by cratering, volcanism, tectonics and erosion by wind AND WATER! (Plate tectonics doesnt seem to have been important) Marss atmosphere is very different from Earths - lower
mass, and full of CO2. Marss small atmosphere and low temperature makes liquid water unstable at its surface (at least right now). Percival Lowells Mars
