Before the completion of the human genome project, many scientists were expecting to find 100,000 or more genes in our genome. This was based on the assumption that because we are one of the most complex creatures on Earth we should have lots of genes. However, it turned out we only have around 24,000 genes.
Alongside cats and tigers, foxes are solitary hunters. There has been the rare sighting of a vixen hunting with her cub, but in general they will forage and hunt for food alone. Although a fox is classified as a carnivore they are omnivorous and will eat almost anything including fruit and vegetables.
All communication between Mars and Earth goes through satellites. Because of the distance, there is a substantial delay. As communication signals travel at the speed of light, this means that it can take between 3 and 22 minutes for the information to reach the other end, so a phone call would not be practical.
