Valentine’s Day is just four days away, which makes me wonder…
Is Mars the planet of war? After all, Venus was the Roman goddess of beauty and love, while Mars was the god of war.
This Valentine’s day, let us resolve to think better of the red planet! Mars is really a happy, loving place, as indicated by the following images taken from orbit around the planet:
Venus, on the other hand, is a deadly place, with searing temperatures, crushing atmospheric pressure, and sulfuric acid clouds. Mars really is a peaceful and homey place in comparison, the best planet in the solar system (other than earth) to take your sweetheart on that special day.
Grace and Peace
