Mars "The Red Planet"


NASA Glenn Visitor Center

Image of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. On March 10, 2006, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter will arrive in Mars' orbit. As it surveys the red planet, the orbiter's high-powered cameras will allow scientists to view the surface in greater detail to support future robotic and human missions to Mars. While it orbits overhead, our two intrepid explorers, Spirit and Opportunity, will continue their geologic investigation of water's role in shaping the surface of Mars.
