Join The Hunt for Mars Polar Lander

Looking For Mars Polar Lander, HiRISE, University of Arizona

"In our last PDS release, HiRISE made available our images (to date) of an area where the Mars Polar Lander is suspected to have crashed in 1999. MPL was the first mission to the high latitudes of Mars, but failed mysteriously, the first of two high-profile failures in Americas Mars program at the time. An assessment team found a number of potential causes of the crash; the condition of MPL, if found, may help to resolve what actually happened."
