Quick Reference

Two US space probes to Mars, each of which consisted of an orbiter and a lander (see table). The orbiters studied the planet and its satellites, while the landers photographed the surface around them, took weather readings, and analysed the composition of the soil. Of particular interest was the possible presence of living organisms on Mars, but none were found.
