Caption: Mars Pathfinder arrival at Mars. Third in a series of three artworks showing how the Mars Pathfinder craft will arrive at Mars in July 1997. Here the craft has opened its three petal-shaped doors, revealing the science package (gold) and the solar panels (blue). At bottom left is the autonomous small rover vehicle which has begun its exploration and study of the surface around the lander. In the distance is the lander's parachute (white). Mars Pathfinder is due for launch in December 1996, and is intended to prove the concept of multipart, low-cost vehicles for repeated Mars exploration missions.
