Darren J Virgo Compare Essay Many people have probably looked up to the stars and asked themselves if they are alone Would it be possible that the universe and its planetary systems are much the same Lets take a look at one of our neighbors Mars and compare a few similarities with Earth Mars is much smaller than the Earth and has no oceans trees or other visible forms of life on the surface However Mars does have several similarities with our own planet Three ways Mars and Earth are alike are that they both have continents craters and volcanic formations First of all Earth and Mars both have continents Continents are made of material that is less dense than the rest of the terrestrial crust which makes them lie higher than the ocean floor There are seven continents on Earth The Earths continents from largest to smallest are Asia Africa North America South America Antarctica Europe and Australia There are the two regions on Mars which seem elevated above the rest of the crust The first is a large elevated region in the lower half of the planet known as the Highlands The other feature is known as the Tharsis Ridge or Bulge It is the size of a small continent on Earth or perhaps a large volcanic island These two features may be thought of as the continents of Mars I find the similarities of Mars and Earth both having continents intriguing but another point of interest is that they both have craters Two-thirds of the surface of the Earth is covered with water The rest of the land surface is lightly cratered On Earth craters are erased from the surface by the action of wind and water
