Spirit to Bring Scientific Exploration to Mars Surface Voice of America

A U.S. spacecraft named Spirit is approaching Mars for a landing on the cold, barren, rocky planet. After it arrives, it is to deploy a six-wheeled robotic rover laden with instruments and cameras on a 90-day hunt for water and signs of life. Three weeks later, the process is to repeat itself on the other side of the red planet with an identical lander and rover.
