  2. What are Marsquakes? A marsquake is a quake that occurs on the planet Mars. A recent study suggests that marsquakes occur every million years.


  3. For the most part, earthquakes on our planet occur becaus of plate tectonics, the mechanics that occur as the plates that make up Earthls outer shell glide over the mantle.
