This activity is about planetary rovers. By designing the FIDO (Field Integrated Design and Operations) & Athena Long-Range Rover, learners will be able to identify instrumentation aboard the rover and then create and explain the instrumentation on their own rover using a supply of different foods. This is activity 9 of 25 from "Mars Activities." Full description.

Since landing on Mars in January 2004, Spirit and Opportunity, the Mars Exploration Rovers, have helped scientists learn an amazing amount about the red planet. The sophisticated rovers far exceeded expectations with the geological clues they have dug up about the planet's past. In this video tour of the rover landing sites, the mission's principal science investigator, Steve Squyres, describes some ... Full description.

It is not easy to get to Mars. Dozens of past missions have failed, with only a handful even attempting to land on the planet's surface. However, in January 2004, careful planning paid off when the Mars Exploration Rover mission successfully landed two rovers, Spirit and Opportunity. This video segment, adapted from a NOVA television broadcast, describes the history of Mars exploration, the many failed ... Full description.

In this video NASA scientists discover firm evidence that water once flowed on Mars?perhaps enough water to harbor life. The site includes links to five essays about Mars, "A Tale of Two Rovers," "Why Go to Mars," "Visions (and Revisions) of Mars," "When Worlds Diverge," and "Is the Signature Still Wet?" It also has photographs of Mars and interactive presentations. Full description.

This activity is about planetary rovers. Learners will simulate the challenges in communications that engineers face when driving a rover on Mars. They will particpate as part of a rover team to design and execute a series of commands that will guide a rover made of people through an obstacle course simulating the Martian surface. Students will learn the limitations of operating a planetary rover ... Full description.
