Great video resources to give your students a current view of the planet surface. It's great to see actual pictures and video of what it looks like along with the latest info and graphics on liquid water existing on Mars. The Rovers are going into their 8th year of exploring, with Mars Rover Opportunity still going strong and Twin Rover Spirit no longer able to travel, but still able to monitor it's surroundings.
Lots of fun Mars sites where you can start your adventures by driving a Mars Rover, try launching your ship from earth and get it to land on Mars....and lots of other fun adventures and you prepare for fun on your Mission to Mars.
Learn how Mars and the Earth are similar and how they are very diffrent. Even with the very extremes in temperature, surface features and low atmospheric pressure, Mars is still the most welcoming planet in our solar system.
Men and Women astronauts are trying out living in the extreme hot, windy and dusty dessert of Arizona and extreme cold temps in the Antarctic to try to learn how to work and survice on Mars. Along with coping with extreme weather, they are learning to conduct experiments on a team and live, eat, sleep and study in the small area of a Mars Habitat.
Each of the Marsville systems are important for our survival on Mars. It will be very important for you to learn about your system and to be creative as you plan to provide Air, Water, Food, Transportation, Communication, Waste Management, Recreation, and Temperature Contol for safe and comfortable living so far away from home.
