Background information

Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer who made four trips across the Atlantic Ocean from Spain. He left Castile with three ships at the end of the 15th century for his first trip and made landfall in the Americas a couple of months later. His purpose was to find a direct water route from Europe to Asia, but his landing place was an island in the Bahamas. Columbus’ journey marks the beginning of centuries of exploration and colonization of North and South America.

Mars is the fourth rock from the sun, just after earth. The minimum distance from Earth to Mars is about 33.9 million miles. The planet Mars has been explored remotely by spacecraft, beginning in the late 20th century. The purpose of these missions is to collect data about the conditions on Mars and to investigate the possibilities for human-crewed space flights to Mars. More knowledge about this red planet could also provide more insight into our earth’s history. NASA is hoping to land the first humans on Mars by the 2030s.
