Mars Rover Exploration

Humans have been fascinated with outer space since the dawn of humankind. Modern day humans have been exploring Mars to the best of our ability because we believe it’s the closest planet to Earth that may one day be able to support life.

So far, we haven’t been able to send humans to Mars and our best way to explore the planet is with the Mars Rover missions and robotic equipment.
