Within the place of work of area technological know-how of the nationwide Aeronautics and area management (NASA) unique value is hooked up to exploration of the planet Mars, since it is the main like Earth of the planets within the sun approach and where the place the 1st detection of extraterrestrial lifestyles turns out probably to be made. The mess ups in 1999 of 2 NASA missions-Mars weather Orbiter and Mars Polar Lander-caused the distance agency's software of Mars exploration to be systematically rethought, either technologically and scientifically. a brand new Mars Exploration application plan (summarized in Appendix A) was once introduced in October 2000. The Committee on Planetary and Lunar Exploration (COMPLEX), a status committee of the gap reviews Board of the nationwide examine Council, was once requested to ascertain the clinical content material of this new software. This objectives of this file are the following:
-Review the country of information of the planet Mars, with certain emphasis on findings of the latest Mars missions and similar study activities;
-Review an important Mars study possibilities within the quick future;
-Review clinical priorities for the exploration of Mars pointed out through advanced (and different clinical advisory teams) and their motivation, and examine the measure to which contemporary discoveries recommend a reordering of priorities; and
-Assess the congruence among NASA's evolving Mars Exploration application plan and those instructed priorities, and recommend any alterations that would be warranted.
