The rare earth metals used to produce our planet series were created inside a star.
When stars burn their hydrogen, every element found on Earth is produced as a byproduct.
These elements are then distributed throughout the cosmos during explosive super novas.
Eventually they coalesce into planets where we refine them at 2,300 degrees to produce colored glass.
The nearest Mars has ever been to the Earth is 34.8 million miles, the furthest 249 million miles. Using the average of 140 million miles:
Walking from Earth to Mars at 4 mph takes 4000 years.
Flying a 747 Jumbo Jet requires 32 years.
The Apollo 10 manned space flight speed record of 24,790 mph would take only 8.4 months.
