Mars has intrigued people for centuries, in particular because of its potential for extraterrestrial life. Today, technology has advanced to the point that scientists can actually send robots such as those used in NASA's Mars Exploration Rover (MER) mission to study Mars. This video segment discusses the MER mission and why scientists are so interested in exploring the red planet. A background essay ... Full description.

This interactive activity lets you explore the Gusev Crater on Mars in 3D. This is the landing site for the MER rover in January 2004. The 3D model was created using data from orbiting spacecraft. You can examine the surface from a distance, changing lighting to enhance features, and fly over the surface, looking for markers hidden in the terrain. Full description.

In this activity, students download NASA Hubble Space Telescope (HST) images of the Martian polar ice caps in summer and winter. Using image processing techniques, students measure and compare various images of the changing Martian and Earth polar ice caps. By completing this activity, they will understand that the sizes of the polar ice caps on Earth and Mars depend on the lengths of the seasons. ... Full description.

This guide introduces teachers to the use of Mars Orbital Laser Altimeter (MOLA) data in the classroom. MOLA data is used to create global topographic maps of Mars and to provide information about properties such as surface roughness, elevation, cloud coverage, brightness, and water flow. This dataset consists of two years of altimetry data on Martian surface features; it can be used to teach Martian ... Full description.

This article is written by a planetary science teacher, many of whose teenaged students, like many young Americans, believe that aliens have visited the solar system and left monuments behind. She uses recent photos of the "face on Mars" to demonstrate to them how an "obvious" alien artifact looks much more ordinary in photos taken at different times of the Martian day. This demonstration engages ... Full description.

In this lesson students explore the idea of using probes to gain scientific information on both Mars and Earth. The students also attempt to determine the likely surface temperature at landing sites on Earth that are comparable to Pathfinder and Viking sites on Mars. This is the fifth in a series of interactive student lessons from the Martian Sun Times. Full description.
