This refreshing, candid look into NASA puts viewers shoulder-to-shoulder with scientists and engineers working on the Mars Exploration Rover Mission. From the intense story of how we landed on Mars successfully to the deeply satisfying scientific results that are being mined by twin Rovers and teams of scientists each and every day.
These twin Rovers still traversing the surface of Mars are the most powerful, compelling and successful robotic geologists ever to explore another planet. This program catapults the viewer to Mars through exclusive animations, dynamic scientist profiles that reveal the human side of the mission and startling photographs that are proving Mars to be a place once habitable to life.
