Mars  


Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun. It is also the second nearest planet to the Earth. It has an orbital period equal to 687 earth days and a rotational period equal to 24 hours 37 minutes and 22.6 seconds. Mythologically, Mars is the god of war and he is deeply woven into the fabric of the ages, coming down from the most ancient of times. In Babylon, Mars was called Nergal and was the god of war. He was also the scorching noonday sun, the
god of plague, epidemics and disasters. Nergal, seeking power, stormed the Underworld, deposed or forced a compromise with the Queen of the Underworld, Ereshkigol, ruling along side her as the Greek Hades and Persephone later did. Nergal was associated with both the Sun (at its hottest point, noonday) and with darkness (the underworld) which made it similar to Mars who was connected to both the Sun and Pluto.
