A Mars rover is a motor vehicle that travels across the surface of the planet Mars. Its purpose is to examine the territory and gather more data related to the Red Planet. There have been six Mars Rovers that’s been deployed since the 1970s. The first two were named Mars 2 and Mars 3 and were deployed by the Soviet Union. Unfortunately, both rovers were not successful in their mission to land on Mars.
Four out of six Mars Rovers were deployed by the United States of America. The first one was called Soujner, a pathfinder that landed on Mars last July 4, 1997. The second one was named Spirit, a Mars exploration rover, that landed last January 4, 2004. The Spirit roamed a total of 7.73 km (4.80 mi) until its wheels got caught in the sand. The last communication with Spirit was received last March 22, 2010.
The third rover was called Opportunity. Similar to Spirit, it was a Mars exploration rover that landed last January 25, 2004, just a few days after Spirit. Opportunity has been the longest rover that roamed Mars at 5,352 sols (5498 Earth days from landing to mission end; 15 Earth years or 8 Martian years). In June 2018, Opportunity’s batteries died when a global sandstorm covered the whole planet and blocked out the sunlight needed for it to recharged.
Last but not least is the Mars rover named Curiosity. It landed on Mars last August 6, 2012, and is still operational as of March 2020. Curiosity’s purpose is to investigate Mars’ climate and weather, geology, and environmental conditions favorable to life. Aside from the collected data Curiosity has given through the years, he also takes amazing selfies.
