Caption

Mars surface. Dry, rocky surface of Mars taken by the panoramic camera on the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit before it left its lander on 18th January 2004. Spirit landed successfully in the Gusev crater on the planet on 4th January 2004. NASA scientists chose this location because the 145- kilometre-wide crater may once have contained a lake. The Spirit rover will study Martian rocks and look for water on the planet. An identical rover, called Opportunity, is planned to land on the other side of the planet on 24th January 2004.
