Mountains got me...

BUt this one is just stupid:
What makes Mars "The Red Planet"?
a) Its atmosphere
b) The way it reflects light from the Sun
c) Iron oxide in the dust on its surface
d) It's not really red -- early astronomers just referred to it as "The Red Planet"
Both b and c are correct. Iron oxide is redish, and it's the light (from the Sun) that reflects from it that we perceive as red.

BTW, questions aren't that hard... maybe Viking thing...

Mars? I thought it was Jupiter. No wonder I got 'em all wrong. Dag!!! Give me a minute... Are you sure it's Mars? Am I spelling that right, M-A-R-R-S? Looks more like the Romulan home world to me.
