LocationThe Sol System
StarSol
First appearance"A Big Piece of Garbage" (1ACV08)
Episode
A dust storm that takes the shape of a cyclone.

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Sol System.

History

Philip J. Fry, II was the first man on Mars, and it was terraformed with traditional college foliage such as ivy, trees and hemp around the time of the founding of Mars University in 2636. Sir Reginald Wong bought Mars from the Native Martians (he traded them a diamond) sometime after that. The buying of Mars is celebrated on Mars Day.

Environment

Mars is frequently victimized by giant dust storms that occasionally take the shape of cyclones. It is unknown whether Native Martians are the sole cause of these storms, or if they occur naturally. Most of Mars appears to be a desert, although a large river and waterfall, as well as a lush jungle, is depicted in Mars University.

  • Native Martians, Buggalo, and Martian Spiders are ostensibly the only species native to Mars.
