Mars Mysteries
This set of interactive activities addresses the question of whether life could exist on Mars. Four separate activities look at what is necessary for life, where one might find water on Mars, would life be on or below the planet's surface as indicated by temperature, and where it would be safe and interesting to land a rover to look for life.
