    Why hot? Mars is further away from the sun than Earth.

    From what I've heard, there's still lots water in the form of frozen icecaps on the south and north poles.

    Mars surface temp:
    minimum: -87°C / -125°F
    mean: -46°C / -51°F
    maximum: -5°C / 23°F

    So it doesn't look like much swimming would have gone on... ice skating, possibly. :D
