Please update highest temperature on Mars. While the conservative figures quoted are from Nasa, there are other Nasa sites especialy rover site which quotes much higher numbers. Would somebody please further research and update. A quote from nasa rover source at : http://marsrover.nasa.gov/spotlight/20070612.html
Any chance that Fahrenheit temps could also be included on right hand chart??
Incorrect conversion of summer max temps in S. Hemisphere : 30C <--> 54F which is correct?
Both are correct. This is a temperature DIFFERENCE, not an absolute temperature. Boardhead (talk) 16:25, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
There's not much point in including "mean anomaly" in the chart on the right. This quantity describes the position of Mars around its orbit and changes continuously. It would be rather neat if that entry linked to an ephemeris and kept us updated on the current position of Mars.
If I'm not mistaken, Mars' moons have to do with Heaven's Family tree. Athena should be one of them. His son's names are Phobos and Deimos. Anyone knows the Mars moon Myth? Mars moon is a special kind of moon. It glows dim at night. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Garinwm (talk • contribs) 00:28, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
I'm confused what you mean. The moons are definitely Phobos and Deimos. DanHobley (talk) 00:45, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
Why use an ugly CGI image of Mars for the header?
All the other planets use true images be they composites of fly-bys or full images from the Hubble Space Telescope etc. Why should Mars be any different?
A true image is most definitely preferable to a computer generated image. That it is higher resolution is irrelevant is it is not a true image anyway. The current CGI image does not look good as part of the header and should be in the gallery sectionBaronVonchesto (talk) 04:46, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
That's not CGI - it's a mosaic of real imagery. A composite of a fly-by, as you put it. DanHobley (talk) 14:37, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
