Synopsis by Alice Day
Will man ever make it to Mars? After landing, will scientists be disappointed at what they find? In Ultrascience 2: Martian Mission, viewers can decide for themselves when they watch as scientists demonstrate how they will approach such a journey. Just as the moon was the ultimate destination for astronauts in the '60s, Mars is proving to be the adventure of a new century with 2010 being the target date for the trip. It would be an inspiration to fuel the hopes of new generations of space explorers, and perhaps pave the way for journeys to the outer planets of the solar system.
