Red Planet

At the end of September 1992, the mars Observer spacecraft will be launched on a year long journey to Mars. When it arrives it will investigate the geology of the planet and its weather systems, producing images with the same degree of resolution as we currently have of the Earth. The Mars Observer carries advanced cameras which will be used to pick out ideal landing sites for the next generation of Martian explorers, the robot roving vehicles, and even for manned landings in the 21st Century. this is the first mission to explore Mars since the Viking spaceprobes, which were launched 17 years ago.
