The Astronomy Center has provided educational resources to introductory astronomy educators since 2003. Over the past 20 years, the rapid pace of discovery has rendered some of our linked resources obsolete. Thus, the Astronomy Center will be decommissioned on March 1, 2022. Our highest quality resources will be retained on ComPADRE.org.
This site describes the Mars exploration program, including the Pathfinder missions to Mars. It includes information on the instruments used, the mission objectives, images, descriptions of the launch and cruise, and much more. There is a special section for educators with creative ideas for the classroom.
