Welcome to Mars: Nova

2005 NR

It's a mission to Mars in this special, which follows the 2004 adventures of two rovers as they explore the Red Planet. The NOVA team joins mission scientists as they monitor the two rovers' (Spirit and Opportunity) progress and thrill at the amazing images transmitted back to ground control. Things gets dicey when Spirit malfunctions, but Opportunity steps in and snaps an image that answers the question of whether there was once water on Mars.
