Five years on Mars( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When NASA rovers Spirit and Opportunity touched down on Mars in 2004, they weren't expected to last long: perhaps 90 days to six months at most. But a short-term science mission searching for evidence of water has turned into a five-year trek across miles of hostile plains, mountains, and deep craters. The rovers have survived dust storms and mechanical failures to explore vast reaches of Mars

Roving Mars [Spirit, Opportunity and the exploration of the red planet] by Steven W Squyres( Recording )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Steve Squyres shares his gripping account of life at the center of one of the great explorations of all time. With hundreds of other scientists and engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and elsewhere, Squyres worked to build and launch two rovers named Spirit and Opportunity, and then guide them on Mars. Squyres artfully chronicles more than a decade of ups, downs, triumphs, dead ends, politics, and, at times, utter confusion in this dramatic tale of how Spirit and Opportunity beat the odds. Roving Mars is both a true adventure story and an insider's view of life at the frontiers of exploration
Sedimentary geology at Meridiani Planum, Mars( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In January of 2004, twin robotic explorers, Spirit and Opportunity, landed on Mars. Expected to last for 90 days, the two rovers explored the Martian surface for nearly two years. Their objective was to search for evidence of ancient water on Mars, and to determine if Mars ever had conditions that would have been suitable for life. Opportunity, landed on Meridiani Planum, a smooth plateau near the Martian equator, coming to rest in a small impact feature named Eagle Crater. After leaving Eagle Crater, Opportunity drove eastward to Endurance Crater, a much larger carter that allowed access to deeper and older rocks. At these locations, Opportunity, found strong evidence for ancient water on Mars. This evidence includes "blueberries," small concretions rich in hematite that precipitated from water. Other evidence includes rocks that ware made largely of sulphate salts, deposited when water evaporated, and rocks that preserve ancient ripples that formed billions of years ago as water flowed over sand on Mars. The conditions long ago at Meridiani Planum could have been suitable for some simple forms of life. Whether life could have developed there, however, is a more difficult question."--Page 4 of cover
