Caption: Mars Polar Lander. Artwork of the Mars Polar Lander in the South Polar region of Mars. This probe was launched on 3rd January 1999. This lightweight spacecraft is designed to study the soil and weather on Mars. The lander will collect soil samples for analysis, which will be tested for water, providing clues about possible Martian life. It also has a camera which will be used to photograph the terrain. Data will be relayed through the black dish at upper centre. The probe is powered by its large solar panels (flat, either side of probe).
