may be some frosen water there, too. Mars lost its volcanos because
there's no geothermal heat to drive them. Its outer core has cooled
and solidified. It is also known that Mars has no magnetic field.
When the volcanos on Mars died out, there was nothing to replenish gas
in the atmosphere. Without the protection of a magnetic field, the
atmosphere was slowly and relentlessly eaten away by the solar wind,
and since Mars has less gravity by virtue of being smaller, it was
less able to try and hold onto that atmosphere. There may be vast
quantitues of water on Mars underground. The jury is still out on
that one. Mars does still have an atmosphere, although not much of
one. Its about 1/100 the density of Earth's. Still, that's enough to
cause some interesting weather there, including global dust storms,
clouds (including water ice clouds), and even a visible blue sky
sometimes, as evidenced by pictures returned by Pathfinder.
