Mars is the fourth planet of the solar system from the sun.
Its orbit lies between those of Earth and Jupiter.
The orbital period of Mars was measured by the ancient Babylonians as:
- $12,59;57,17$ days
as represented using the Babylonian number system.
This is seen to represent the number in decimal notation as approximately:
- $779 \cdotp 955$ days
The modern figure is $779 \cdotp 936$ days
