08 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Solar System. Named after the Roman god of war, it is often described as the "Red Planet", as the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance.[14] Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the volcanoes, valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth. The rotational period and seasonal cycles of Mars are likewise similar to those of Earth, as is the tilt that produces the seasons. Mars is the site of Olympus Mons, the highest known mountain within the Solar System, and of Valles Marineris, one of the largest canyons. The smooth Borealis basin in the northern hemisphere covers 40% of the planet and may be a giant impact feature.[15][16] Mars has two moons, Phobos and Deimos, which are small and irregularly shaped. These may be captured asteroids, similar to 5261 Eureka, a Martian trojan asteroid.

Until the first successful flyby of Mars occurred in 1965 by Mariner 4, many speculated about the presence of liquid water on the planet's surface. This was based on observed periodic variations in light and dark patches, particularly in the polar latitudes, which appeared to be seas and continents; long, dark striations were interpreted by some as irrigation channels for liquid water. These straight line features were later explained as optical illusions, though geological evidence gathered by unmanned missions suggest that Mars once had large-scale water coverage on its surface.[17] In 2005, radar data revealed the presence of large quantities of water ice at the poles[18] and at mid-latitudes.[19][20] The Mars rover Spirit sampled chemical compounds containing water molecules in March 2007. The Phoenix lander directly sampled water ice in shallow Martian soil on July 31, 2008.[21]

Mars is currently host to five functioning spacecraft: three in orbit—the Mars Odyssey, Mars Express, and Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter; and two on the surface—Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity and the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity. Defunct spacecraft on the surface include MER-A Spirit, and several other inert landers and rovers, both successful and unsuccessful, such as the Phoenix lander, which completed its mission in 2008. Observations by NASA's now-defunct Mars Global Surveyor show evidence that parts of the southern polar ice cap have been receding.[22] Observations by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter have revealed possible flowing water during the warmest months on Mars.[23]

Mars can easily be seen from Earth with the naked eye. Its apparent magnitude reaches −3.0,[7] which is only surpassed by Jupiter, Venus, the Moon, and the Sun. Optical ground-based telescopes are typically limited to resolving features about 300 km (186 miles) across when Earth and Mars are closest, because of Earth's atmosphere.[24]
08 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello again england. Always a pleasure to have the mars info haha
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm just educating. LOL
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Can you teach me about Venus?
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: many a soviet probe melted on venus
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Venus is the second planet from the Sun, orbiting it every 224.7 Earth days.[11] The planet is named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty. After the Moon, it is the brightest natural object in the night sky, reaching an apparent magnitude of −4.6, bright enough to cast shadows.[13] Because Venus is an inferior planet from Earth, it never appears to venture far from the Sun: its elongation reaches a maximum of 47.8°. Venus reaches its maximum brightness shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset, for which reason it has been known in ancient time as the Morning Star or Evening Star. It was not until the Hellenistic era (300-200 BC) astronomers realised it was one object and gave it the name it has today.

Venus is classified as a terrestrial planet and is sometimes called Earth's "sister planet" owing to their similar size, gravity, and bulk composition (Venus is both the closest planet to Earth and the planet closest in size to Earth). It is shrouded by an opaque layer of highly reflective clouds of sulfuric acid, preventing its surface from being seen from space in visible light. Venus has the densest atmosphere of the four terrestrial planets, consisting mostly of carbon dioxide. The atmospheric pressure at the planet's surface is 92 times that of Earth's. With a mean surface temperature of 735 K, Venus is by far the hottest planet in the Solar System. It has no carbon cycle to lock carbon back into rocks and surface features, nor does it seem to have any organic life to absorb it in biomass. Venus is believed to have previously possessed oceans,[14] but these vaporized as the temperature rose due to the runaway greenhouse effect.[15] The water has most probably photodissociated, and, because of the lack of a planetary magnetic field, the free hydrogen has been swept into interplanetary space by the solar wind.[16] Venus' surface is a dry desertscape interspersed with slab-like rocks and periodically refreshed by volcanism.
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Fascinating
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: You're welcome. ;]
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thanks for everyone who I had an alliance with. Screw you too.
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Starting to think that Austria and Italy are multi account faggots...
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Rofl
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: haha and turkey. Why would you give up your sc's without a fight?
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: we are not multi account, though that would be a very lazy accusation to make when two players find accord with one another and work well together
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1908: like when me and germany drove you out of this game
08 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: well i made too mahy mistakes in england
