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.

This 46 minute radio broadcast discusses the NASA announcement in March 2004 that the rover Opportunity explored a crater on Mars that was once soaked with water - the most convincing evidence yet of a warm, wet past on Mars. Though the question of whether that water may have supported life remains, it certainly improves the odds. The second part of the broadcast discusses genetically engineered organisms. ...

This site provides two radio broadcasts: an update on several space missions and a discussion of McNeil's Nebula. The first 33-minute broadcast discusses space missions exploring the planets in our solar system, such as Cassini in its orbit around Saturn, the twin Mars rovers, and Messenger, soon to lift off for the planet Mercury. The second, a 15-minute clip, discusses how a newborn star is shining ... Full description.

This interactive activity lets you superimpose familiar objects onto images of various features on Mars so you can see just how large they are. The features include crater landing sites, the largest volcano in the solar system, and a headwater area, etc. The objects include a school bus, stadium, Texas, Hawaii, and the contiguous USA. The activity is fun and educational. Full description.
