Summary
The program is NOVA's sequel to its first rover feature Mars: Dead or Alive, which aired a day after Spirit's Jan. 3, 2004 landing at Gusev Crater (Opportunity landed at Meridiani Planum on Jan. 25). Since then, mission scientists and engineers have helped the rovers overcome a potentially crippling software glitch aboard Spirit, a stuck heater on Opportunity and found evidence that liquid water was once plentiful in the distant Martian past. For viewers with an interest in Mars - but perhaps not the time to track Spirit and Opportunity's progress day after Martian day - Welcome to Mars provides a pretty clear overview of the mission's science accomplishments to date
