Question

How long are the seasons on Mars?

Answer

The seasons on Mars are longer than the ones on Earth due to the fact that Mars' year is longer than Earth's year. Because it's farther from the sun, It's got farther to go around. So Mars' summer is about twice as long as you'd expect on Earth. Which, if you're having good summers like they do in Australia would be fantastic but a bummer if you live in Britain!
