I have been learning how to write information reports,   
I have done one about space, 
Here It is,

 Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and the
 next beyond earth,it is known as the red planet,
 that is because of all the rusted iron
 on mars’ surface. Mars got its name from the
 roman god of war,they named it after the god of
 war because mars is red like blood.


Mars has a stunning history, it could have 
supported life many years ago.
People say Mars once had water that flowed lushly across the planet,
the existing nutrients and the amazing atmosphere that protected mars years ago,
which makes it almost certain that there was once, life on mars.
But then 4 BILLION years ago the martian core got colder and colder, 
shutting down the dynamo that sustained its magnetic field,
the solar wind was cutting little bits of the atmosphere causing the water 
on mars to leak out into space.


Mars is mainly made of 3 main materials Iron, nickel and Sulfur,
surrounding mars’ core is a rocky mantle that is between 770 to 1270 miles wide, 
and sitting on top of that a crust made of iron magnesium, aluminum, calcium, 
and potassium. ( I don't know what those are ) Mars’ atmosphere is made of 95% 
carbon dioxide and less than 1% oxygen. 

Mars' Moons

Mars' moons are some of the smallest in the solar system.
Phobos is a bit larger than Deimos, and orbits only 3,700 miles 
(6,000 kilometers) above the Martian surface. No known moon orbits closer to 
its planet. It orbits around Mars three times a day, while the more distant 
Deimos takes 30 hours for each orbit.

Mars is one of many planets that could have supported life and might still do,
scientists believe lots of Mars’ water has disappeared since the planet formed. 
Even though Mars’ may not support life, many other planets might have the same 
chance Mars had many years ago.
