Traveling to Mars isn't a new idea. Humanity has been asking itself if there is life on Mars since its similarity to the Earth was found. Four changing seasons, 24 hours day, atmospheric clouds and hazes, suitable orbit, endurable temperatures and brilliant white polar caps - what more could we want?
Since then people have been making detailed observations and sending rockets and different kinds of devices to turn the great question into an answer. Even just observations cause different opinions - some people say there can't be life on Mars, others state that life has different aspects.
Nothing is confirmed, yet! Dozens of spacecrafts, including orbiters, landers, and rovers, have been sent to Mars by the Soviet Union, the United States, Europe, and Japan to study the planet's surface, climate, to search for liquid water and living organisms. Many spacecrafts destined for Mars have failed before completing or even beginning their missions but many more have succeeded.
Among the most successful missions are the Mars probe program, the Mariner and Viking programs, Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Pathfinder, Mars Odyssey and Mars Exploration Rovers.
But no human has ever stepped on Mars. No human has ever traveled to Mars. And that's why now we offer you to sit back and enjoy our "virtual" travel to Mars which will allow you to learn new and exciting things about the Red Planet in an unusual and interesting way.
