Caption

Illustration of the Mars Polar Lander spacecraft jettisoning its two Deep Space 2 Probes to the Martian surface. The probes were designed to hit the surface at high velocity and penetrate the Martian soil. From there they would study the subsurface composition. Contact with the spacecraft was lost just before its expected landing on 3rd December 1999.
