NASA study: Impossible' to make Mars like Earth with current technology

Mars is now the closest to Earth than it has been in 15 years

July is the "Summer of Mars", so it's only fitting that the red planet will be wrapping up the month with its most spectacular show yet - a close encounter. Meanwhile the very bright planet Venus pops up in the very low western sky in the evening twilight, but sets shortly thereafter.

The closest approach on Tuesday will make Mars brightest since 2003.

The planets were photographed near opposition, when the Sun, Earth and an outer planet are lined up, with Earth sitting in between the Sun and the outer planet.

At this point, the ringed planet was 1.4 billion kilometers (870 million miles) away from Earth and its spectacular rings are almost at maximum tilt toward the planet, offering a breathtaking angle of Saturn to photograph.

That's because Earth's orbit around the sun is 365 days, but it takes Mars 687 days to take a lap around our star. Its closest and most distant points from the Sun vary by 19 percent (as opposed to 3 percent for Earth).

Every time the Mars comes closer to Earth, moderately large dust storms cover the continent-sized areas and last for weeks at a stretch.
