Martian rocks may have names,thanks to the scientists of NASA's Pathfinder mission, which landed on the red planet and sent back 16,000 images. Other names include Yogi, Booboo, Poptart, and Jazzy. Mars gets as hot as 24 degrees Farenheit, but before you pack your bags, you should know that it's thin atmosphere is mostly Carbon Dioxide.
