Solar wind turned Mars into what it is today

#Mars #space #MAVEN #exploration #atmosphere #planet Mars also had a dense atmosphere, similar to Earth's, about 4 billion years ago. This atmosphere kept the planet warm and wet, but somehow the Mars atmosphere became vulnerable to the solar wind (probably because of the loss of the planet's magnetic field), which resulted energized particles in the … Continue reading Solar wind turned Mars into what it is today
