Welcome to MarsFall 2005 DVD
These people are as much space explorers as the astronauts and mission specialists in the manned space program. They had to plan a mission three years in advance, considering every possible scenario they might encounter. When the explorers successfully landed on Mars, they had to adjust their lives to Mars time to get the rest of the job done.
The video tells us about the almost unfathomable costs and the amazing advancements in technology that make something like this possible, but mostly it shows us that people make it happen. The press releases during and following the Spirit and Opportunity missions told us that by mineralogical evidence scientists had proven that liquid water once existed on the planet Mars. Without this video, who would have known the amount of effort that went into the project?
This DVD has printable materials for educators accessible using Adobe Acrobat that add to the value of this already worthy production.
