Man on Mars [electronic resource]: Mission to the Red Planet

Until recently, the idea of sending humans to Mars was pure science fiction. Now the world's largest space agency is gearing up for its most ambitious project yet - a manned mission 140 million miles across space to the Red Planet. From testing their rockets and experimenting on their astronauts to designing their life support systems, Horizon follows teams across NASA as they start work. How will they overcome the impossible? Is it actually do-able? And if they do land a human on Mars, will they ever be able to bring them back again...?

Mission to Mars [electronic resource]

Due to land in August 2012, NASA's Curiosity Rover is intended to answer the big question about Mars - is it a suitable environment for life? The biggest and most powerful machine ever sent to Mars, Curiosity is a mobile lab packed with diverse scientific equipment and the information it uncovers could change the way we think about the iconic red planet forever. But before Curiosity can begin its mission of discovery, it must first pass the biggest test of all - landing safely on the Martian surface. By 2010, 38 attempts had been made to reach the planet. Only 19 had succeeded. Horizon tells the story of this unique journey of scientific discovery.

Messenger [electronic resource]: Mission to Mercury

The MESSENGER orbiter's January 2008 flyby of the planet Mercury was historic. The last time a spacecraft visited was 1975, and it only mapped half the planet. MESSENGER is now sending back a complete picture of Mercury, shedding light on its geological history. But the ongoing mission will return much more than images. Its data on the planet's core, magnetic field, composition, and other attributes will help scientists answer pressing questions about the evolution of the terrestrial planets and even the Solar System itself. In this science bulletin, the MESSENGER science team reacts as the orbiter's first images of Mercury roll in.
