A lot of people I know believe that it was a global cataclysm that caused Mars to be a "dead planet". If you look at the picture below you'll
notice a huge impact scar on or around the equator. Many people believe that something must have collided or hit Mars and caused it to lose it's
atmosphere and turned it into the bone dry rock it is today.

There is also another theory, which I find very entertaining, that the scar on Mars, Valles Marineris, is the result of a near
miss rather than a collision.
As the theory goes the scar is the result of an electrical interaction between two bodies, Venus being the other body, which caused the complete
desruction of all life on Mars and the stripping away of most of its atmosphere and surface water.
, take a back seat to a real entertaining movie idea,
"Worlds in Collision".
