Answer Check out NASA . Mars rovers are robots equiped with cameras and other gear made to roll on the uncertain terrain of mars in other words they rove around Mars. They also pick up soil etc. for analysis.
The first rovers sent to Mars were the Russian Rovers,Mars 2 and Mars 3. But, Mars 2 crash-landed on the planet and Mars 3 ceased transmissions 20 seconds after landing. Mariner 4 was the first succesfully landed probe.
Eight rovers were sent to Mars:\n. \nMars 2, Prop-M rover, 1971, failed\n. \nMars 3, Prop-M rover, 1971, failed\n. \nViking 1, landed July 20, 1976, longest rover to function on Mars (6 years 116 days), lost contact due to a faulty command on November 11, 1982.\n. \nViking 2, landed September 3,… 1976, stopped functioning on 11 April 1980 when its batteries stopped working\n. \nSojourner rover, Mars Pathfinder, landed successfully on July 4, 1997.

Two rovers of different kinds have landed on Mars. The first Mars Rover landed in 1997. The first Mars Navigator landedin 2004.
Every artificial satellite, section of the Space Station, Hubble Space Telescope, space probe, orbiter, or lander, including each of the Mars rovers, was the payload of a rocket that was launched from Earth and navigated to its destination.
Spacecraft launched from Earth to Mars usually take between 235 to 260 days , depending on the distance between the two planets on the launch date.
On Earth, the Spirit and Opportunity rovers each weigh about 408 lbs.Surface gravity on Mars is 38% that of Earth, so each rover weighs about155 lbs there. The mass of Curiosity is 899 kilograms. That massweighs 8,816 newtons (1,982 pounds) on Earth and 3,336 newtons (750 pounds) on Mars.
The Gravitational Pull Tries to Pull it up But it is a machine It is not like a human.
The first Mars Rover, Spirit was launched on the 10 of June 2003. Strictly speaking there was an earlier one, but it was only a little rover called "Sojourner". That landed on Mars in1997.
yes, the mars rover is still on mars and it will forever be on mars.
The mars rover is a robot sent to mars to take samples and pictures for scientists to analyse back on earth, for detailed information i suggest Wikipeia
the first mars rover was made in 1971 and it was named Prop M and was launched to mars but it failed. So they made another one called Mars 3 but that also failed. After the third one was made it was able to communicate and the ones after that were made were also successful. But the first mars rove…r was made in 1971:D (hope this helps!!) ( Full Answer )
its like a rocket. it went by it self. but people controled it with a remote . its like a rocket. it went by it self. but people controled it with a remote
when mars is close to the moon the moon turns veryred like marsand that is called a mars moon or red moon or moonars
The Soviet Union's " Mars 2 " had a " Prop-M "rover on board the lander but the mission failed when the lander impacted into the Martian surface .
2 of Mars rovers spirit and opportunity land on mars by when it entered its atmosphere airbags inflated and a parachute opened. when it landed it unfolded and the mars rovers rolled out
The Mars Rover called the Phoenix Lander found ice on the polar ice cap on Mars. There have not been any other discoveries on Mars but Mars Rovers are still searching...........
The first rover on Mars was named "Sojourner" and flew to Mars aboard the Mars Pathfinder mission, landing there on July 4, 1997. The rover functioned until September, when contact with Earth was lost.
The rovers were lowered on the planet mars , with the help of a parachute.
The Martian rovers discovered that the geology is base on sulphate rocks and not carbonate rocks as seen on Earth. The atmosphere is a reducing one rather than an oxidising one as here on Earth and accounts for the orange hue to all the rocks. Water must have flowed in vast quantities in the past bu…t where it is now is still unknown. It may have leaked into space or it may be frozen as super brine beneath the surface. . ( Full Answer )
"Curiosity" was launched on November 26, 2011, and landed on Mars on August 6, 2012.
the mars rover got to mars in a big air that came off a spacecraft so the mars rover would not break when it landed
Sojourner landed in July 1997 and communications were lost in September of that year. Spirit landed in January 2004, and is still functioning but it is stuck in sand. But data is still collected from it. Opportunity also landed in January 2004 and it still functional.
The two Mars rovers namely opportunity and spirit were shot to Marsin 1997 and 2006 respectively. Their aim was to send signals frommars back to earth to give researchers a better understanding ofwhat goes on in Mars.
As of December 2011, there are at least two of them on the surface, and another one is on the way.
The Mars rover got on Mars in these pods that opened up when they got there and then the Mars rover started building up and there are two there right now and one is called Spirit and the other is called Hope.
The Mars rover has been on the planet Mars since 2004. On July 27,2014, the rover broke the off-Earth world driving record when itaccrued 25 miles.
Information. Those running the project want to know what is there, what it is made of, how it formed, etc.
Launch dates:Mars 2(Prop-M) - 19th of May 1971 Mars 3(Prop-M) - 28th of May 1971 Sojourner - 4th of December 1996 PLUTO - 2nd of june 2003 Spirit - 10th of june 2003 Opportunity - 7th of July 2003 Curiosity - 26th of November 2011
The Mars 2, Prop-M rover, was sent in 1971 and was the first Mars Rover to be sent. Unfortunately the attempt was unsuccessful. The first successful Mars rover (and the third successful rover sent into space) was Sojourner . It was launched by NASA on December 4, 1996, and landed July 4, 1997. … The most recent, successful, and currently operating Mars rover is the Opportunity (MER-B), Mars Exploration Rover, which landed successfully on January 25, 2004. So far there have been a total of five Mars Rovers. ( Full Answer )
The two Mars Exploration Rovers on the surface of planet Mars are the Spirit and the Opportunity.
the mars rover cheeks the dirt on mars for any signs of life. letsgo falcons and boo patriots
There have been 5 rovers sent to Mars: Mars 2 Prop-M rover was launched by a Proton K Rocket and carried by the orbiter.

Nothing except pick up rock samples. Joke: The Mars Rover can do the moon walk.
Things that earth doesn't have , like aliens . By: Donny Heitler ==== Thanks Donny. Nice job. The rovers are not looking for aliens on Mars. And how do you know there are none on Earth ? Now go to your room.
There's no specific time limit for how long a rover can last on Mars. Accidents and mechanical failure can affect the ability of a rover to survive. The Opportunity rover has so far been working almost non-stop for seven years. Its twin rover Spirit has not been heard from in almost a year and m…ay no longer be functional. ( Full Answer )
Spirit and Opportunity are the 2 current rovers Pathfinder was the name of the last rover Curiosity is the name of the rover currently under development (2/9/2011)
I'm no genius, but to find trustworthy answers i look on google :D hope it works for you!
The Spirit and Opportunity rovers were each launched on an Atlas V rocket, travelled throughout space for about 6 months, then parachuted through Mars's atmosphere and landed by Inflating large airbags around their protective landing shells and dropping to the ground.
One of them currently isn't doing anything but sitting there; it's unlikely that it will start working again, since it already exceeded its original planned mission time by a factor of twenty or so. If it does ever respond again, it will probably do so within the month, since it's Martian summer whe…re it's located, meaning it's getting as much sunlight for power as it ever will (the actual solar maximum is supposed to occur in mid-March 2011). The other one is still conducting experiments. If you want to know details, you could visit NASA's web site; I'll put a link in the related links section for you to the part about the rovers. You can check the archives to see all the things they've done, but basically it amounts to driving around, looking at rocks, testing them in various ways, etc. ( Full Answer )
It explores the surface of mars and it is a robot like feature. It shows the surface of mars and the NASA people can see what is happening on mars. They're seeing if there are traces of water too.
Robotic probes are sent to other plants to obtain scientific information. This can be described as an exercise in pure science (rather than applied science) because we do not have any immediate practical need for information about the planet Mars, it's just information that scientists want to have, …to better understand the universe in which we live.

It takes pictures of what is there like rocks, or any life that may be there
The three rovers Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity remain in operation exploring the surface of Mars, managed and overseen by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The first rover, Sojourner, was a part of the larger Pathfinder mission, which touched down on 4th July 1997 in an ancient flood plain… in Mar's Northern hemisphere called 'Ares Vallis'. The rover was to work in conjunction with the static Pathfinder lander acting as it's mobile research and collecting vehicle. The mission was originally designed to last only a month, but in the event lasted for THREE months, with the rover taking detailed spectroscopic analysis of Martian rocks as well as other complex analyses of the Martian soil and atmosphere. Final contact with Pathfinder was on 27th September '97, after which her batteries failed due to repeated discharging and re-charging, which eventually caused vital on-board electronic hardware to break, leading to loss of communications. Following this, contact with Sojourner was lost too- she never ventured further than 36 feet away from the Pathfinder lander, and to this day remains parked next to a large rock nicknamed 'Yogi' whose structure she was analysing. The Mars Reconnaisance Orbiter spotted Pathfinder and her attendant rover on the Martian surface in January 2007- they will remain where they are indefinitely, although when eventually human beings do manage to land on Mars, they may visit the defunct probes and possibly even bring them back to be put on display in a museum. But that is many decades away. They have been named the Sagan Memorial Station in honour of the late astronomer and planetologist, Dr. Carl Sagan. The retro-rockets, parachute and backshell that were used in landing the two probes flew back up into space after delivering their cargo and are now in orbit around Mars, occasionally being visible now and again passing by the vision of the Reconnaisance Orbiter.

A space probe with special gear to send curiosity rover safely to the surface of mars
The NASA mission "Mars Pathfinder"delivered the first successful rover, called Sojourner, to the surface on July 4, 1997.
The Soviet Union sent the first Mars rovers. The first was Mars 2 which arrived in November of 1971. The following month, Mars 3 also arrived. Both missions failed. Mars 2 crashed onto the surface and Mars 3 landed okay but ceased radio transmission seconds later. The first successful rover mission… was by the United States which arrived in September 1997; the Pathfinder mission. The Pathfinder lander delivered the rover Sojourner. ( Full Answer )
Yes they are. Here are the two Mars rovers who is looking for life on Mars, Curiosity and it's unnamed twin rover which going to be launch in 2020. Others say that other Mars rover like Spirit and Opportunity is looking for life, they are not looking for life. They are looking for water. Curiosity i…s the only rover who can look for life on Mars. ( Full Answer )
1. The rover's wheel got stuck under a rock, trying to get out. It took a month or so. 2. I like ponies, chocolate, and butt cheeks. 3. You're welcome. FART.
On wheels, driven by electrical motors. It moves very slowly, transmitting pictures and data to an orbiting relay station and then to Earth; controllers on Earth review the data, and transmit new commands to the Mars rovers. Think of it as the solar system's slowest radio-controlled toy car.
