02. When Can I Go To Mars?
From the series " Heads Up!"
You can go there now and see Mars through the eyes of robots. Join the excitement of a Mars landing as we watch two remote control rovers land on the red planet. The robots are much less expensive—and far less risky—than sending humans. Look out over the dusty plains, drive down into deep craters and find out how Mars used to be a planet like Earth, with lakes, rivers and possibly and ocean. We look ahead to future rovers and eventually people who will make the long journey and set up the first up habitats on our neighbour in space. And its not all work, there’s terrific skiing at the north polar cap!
