From the average person’s point of view Mars, our nearest neighbour is the most interesting planet. For many hundreds of years philosophers, astronomers, scientists and ordinary people have speculated all manner of possibilities for Mars, especially the concept that creatures known as Martians lived on the surface and even carved out canals and a huge sculpture of a human like face surface.
All of this is probably because it is relatively so close to us in distance, and even today because of its neighbour status, it is the main focus of planetary exploration for NASA. This is possibly due to the enduring thought that life may, or may have, existed on the planet and also possibility to one-day we may be able to set up colonies on its surface.
