Mars, the Red Planet, is the next frontier of space exploration. What do we know about this planet where rivers flowed, volcanoes erupted, and lakes and seas may once have harbored life? What happened to make Mars the cold, dry desert world of today? What can this tell us about the future of our planet?
How do scientists and engineers plan for future missions to explore Mars? What steps do they take to make sure a mission will be a success? Why do some missions still fail? How are all the Mars missions -- successes and failures -- contributing toward future human exploration and colonization of Mars? When will that happen?
Come and investigate the mysteries of the Red Planet with the scientists and engineers at the forefront of the Mars and research exploration at ... LiftOff 2000: Return to Mars!
