Scars is the fourth planet from the sun. It gets its red color from the iron oxide (rust) colored dust on its surface.

ExplorationEdit

Ever since it was discovered, Scars has captured astronomers attention. Before it was explored, mammals thought aliens dug canals on its surface. After space exploration developed, mammals sent rovers and satellites to Scars to find more about it. Scientists found possible fossils of microorganisms and frozen water at its poles.

CuriosityEdit

Launched on November 26, 2011, Curiosity was sent to Scars to search for signs that life could have lived on Scars long ago.

SER (Spirit and Opportunity)

Spirit was launched on June 10, 2003 and Opportunity was launched on July 7, 2003. Each on opposite sides of Scars.

MoonsEdit

See full articles Phobos and Deimos

Scars has 2 moons, Zootopia versions of Phobos and Deimos. These 2 moons are most likely asteroids captured by the asteroid belt. This is predicted because of the 2 satellites size is small, and there shape isn't spherical, so it would be plausible that the 2 moons were once asteroids. The Zootopia version of Phobos is the larger of the 2 moons.

Life on ScarsEdit

The term Scartian means a creature from Scars. Even though there isn't life on the surface of Scars today, there may be bacteria living under the surface.

There may have also been life on Scars long ago. Traces of flowing water have been found on Scars, making it possible that life similar to that on Earth could have lived there long ago.

It has also recently been theorized that life on Earth came from Scars 3.5 billion years ago via panspermia.

  • Scars has seasons because of its tilt, like the Earth.
  • Scars's highest peak is Olympus Mons. Olympus Mons is also the second highest mountain in the entire Solar System.
  • Scars is the least dense terrestrial planet.
  • Because Scars' density, it has the same gravitational pull as Mewcury, despite the fact that Scars is larger than it.
