Looking for Life on Mars

Regular price $32.98 $27.98
  • Feel the tension build as NASA scientists launch the spectacularly successful Mars 2020 Mission. What did it take for all the pieces to align so that the rover Perseverance could make a perfect landing in Jezero Crater, and for the robotic helicopter Ingenuity to take the first-ever test flight in another world? How could discoveries on Mars enrich our life on Earth? And how will they help us know if life might exist somewhere else in the universe? Fascinating CGI videos, documentary film and interviews help you experience again the hope, anticipation and suspense of this exciting chapter in our space adventure. 1 hour on 1 Disc SDH

  • If the rover, called Perseverance, finds signs of life from when Mars was a watery planet like Earth, it could mean life is more likely to exist elsewhere in the solar system—and beyond. But getting to Jezero isn’t easy, as the crater’s boulders and cliffs make it a dangerous place to land. The spacecraft will reach Mars’ atmosphere traveling at over 12,000 miles per hour and will have just a few minutes to execute an elaborate descent maneuver and lower the car-sized rover to the surface in just the right spot. If successful, Perseverance will comb the area and collect samples for possible return to Earth. Traveling onboard Perseverance is a four-pound helicopter that will conduct a series of test flights—the first on another planet. During its journey, Perseverance will also test technology designed to produce oxygen from the Martian atmosphere, in hopes that the gas could be used for fuel—or for humans to breathe—on future missions.
