I don't understand, why is "is 50 per cent smaller" in Mars?

Hello Melyndra sp.
The text says that Mars 'is about half the size of Earth', so it is 50% smaller than Earth.

I don't think so

...How can I think something about it , whereas the special scientists know nothing or they are rather negative with this alternative prospect?....

Maybe in the long-term? In my opinion, this is possible even in the near future, but would need so much money that it is not sensible.

In my opinion it isn't possible people will live on Mars one day!

I think it's hard for human to live in Mars someday because there are more carbon dioxide than Earth.

I don't have idea about it, but I think with technology and researches we can live there soon.
