Spirit & Opportunity: 10 Years Roving Across Mars

January 3, 2014 | 10:00am
Museum in Washington, DC

This exhibition celebrates the amazing images and achievements of the two Mars Exploration Rovers on the 10th anniversary of their landings on the Red Planet. It tells the story of the rovers through the photographs they took—stunning views of the Martian surface, including large-scale panoramic images.

The twin Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity were launched toward Mars in the summer of 2003. They arrived months later in spectacular fashion, bouncing down safely on the surface after a harrowing six-minute descent through the thin atmosphere. Spirit arrived on January 3, 2004, and Opportunity on January 24, 2004.
