Exciting New Images of Mars Help Lockheed Martin Prepare For the Next Missions to the Red Planet Florida Today

Some of the most interesting pictures of the red planet taken to date are now available courtesy of the Lockheed Martin-built Mars Global Surveyor (MGS). The strange, layered terrain of the southern polar region of Mars represents a very different view of the planet than ever seen before. This region of Mars will be the landing site for the 1998 Mars Polar Lander currently under construction at Lockheed Martin Astronautics, Denver, Colo.
