In the known Universe, the Earth is the most complex object. It is also the most colorful thing that we have seen – Blue, White, Green and Red. Each of these colors have an intimate connection to the history of Earth. In this presentation, Earth’s formation is given in the sequence in which the four primary colors of the planet came to exist. The Red came with iron. The White from frozen water. The Blue from liquid water. The Green from life – photosynthesis. By exploring the primary colors of our planet, the principle characteristic and process of life-bearing planets are appreciated. The surprising conclusion? Mars is Red and White for the same causes that made Earth Red and White. Aram Harijan will present striking viewgraphs while he discusses this topic.
