The greeks thought Mars as the god of war. The greeks named it for a roman god. People think a lifeform can live there. Percival Lowell thinks that martians had built channels for water to get from icy parts to drier parts. It is possible that lifeforms havebeen landing on our planet for billions of years. The lifeforms could build a monument and launch an attack on Earth. Some people say there is a face on it built by martians.
