I think there are a lot of imcredible resources in Mars. It is definitely helpful for us to find them. Recently, some people have found the ways which get easy accesses to space. I'm really interested in the development of rockets.

It is a good unit to practice comparison. I conclude I should review this grammar point. There are interesting sentences to learn how you have to say in English language ideas of proportion like "It's got about one per cent as much air as Earth". For me, sometimes the structure with is a trick :/

I don't think that we can survial in Mars with such a little water.

How can i put the characteristics in the correct group .i mean what keys should i use to drag those characteristcs

Hello Aye Nyine San

When you want to add another sentence to a group, you have to click or press on the small white hand at the side of the words already in the box. If you don't do this, then the new words will stay but the old words will disappear from the box.

It's a little difficult to explain, so please let me know if you'd like me to explain it again.

All the best

We can live there , but I'm not thinking about this time
we need a lot of studies on oxygen on Mars as well as on water
I think if these development countries are beginning to think about this goal and they support studies, perhaps after 100 years, we can live on Mars

No, I don't. Maybe one day we would be able to go on Mars and we'd discover life, but I'm sure that if life exist on Mars this would be very different from life on Earth.

No, It's impossible

I don't think it will be possible to live in Mars.

I think that is a good listening because it is easy and you learn new things from Mars.
An example would be that Mars is further from the Sun than Earth and that it has lees gravity.
