In January of 2004, NASA realized its long-standing ambition to explore the surface of Mars when two robotic rovers landed on the red planet to probe and beam back photographic imagery of its scorched terrain. The mission was almost derailed, however, when the first explorer, the Spirit rover, began experiencing technical difficulties, and the scientists themselves nearly unravelled from the demands of adjusting their earthbound circadian rhythms to Mars' longer day/night cycle. But with Spirit soon repaired and the second explorer, Opportunity, transmitting images of Mars' unique rock formations, the scientists' distress turned to elation as they discovered incontrovertible proof that there was once water (and possibly life) on the red planet. A sequel to MARS DEAD OR ALIVE--which detailed the rovers' preflight engineering--this episode of PBS' NOVA series follows the post-landing challenges and rewards of NASA's groundbreaking scientific achievement.
