Hi Andy,

I visited the Faust website and it looks interesting. Are we going to be watching them perform one day? I also watched the video on Mars. Here are the answers to the questions:
1. Reaching the high 60s.
2. Ares, the god of war. When the Romans conquered the Greeks, they renamed it Mars.
3. They way Mars orbits the Sun causes the seasons to be different. In the northern hemisphere, Spring lasts two months longer than Fall.
4. Robotic cars were sent to Mars to find habitable environment or even life. Now Nasa and the European Space Agency plan to send astronauts to Mars in about 30 years.
