For more than 50 years, humans have been sending missions to Mars, hoping to learn as much as we can about this red and dusty planet. What have the successful missions found so far? How many unsuccessful missions have we sent throughout our quest to explore this other world? What do we hope to learn in the future? Join Senior Planetarium Presenter Mary Holt to explore Mars and its past, current, and future robot inhabitants.
