  • Description

    AND PHOTOGRAPHING AS THE SEASONS CHANGED BELOW. THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS WE'VE LEARNED: MARS HAS BEEN GEOLOGICALLY ACTIVE WITH VOLCANIC MOUNTAINS. THERE ARE INDICATIONS THAT FREE-FLOWING WATER MAY HAVE EXISTED SOMETIME IN PAST MARTIAN HISTORY. OBSERVED FROM ABOVE WERE HUGE IMPACT CRATERS AND WIND-BLOWN DUNES. THE MORE THAN SEVEN THOUSAND PICTURES RETURNED BY MARINER HAVE ENABLED SCIENTISTS TO MAP THE ENTIRE MARTIAN SURFACE, AND PINPOINT LANDING SITES FOR THE UNMANNED VIKINGS SCHEDULED TO SOFT LAND THERE IN 1976.

    JUPITER...A THOUSAND TIMES LARGER THAN EARTH. DISTINGUISHED BY GLOWING YELLOW-ORANGE AND BLUE-GRAY STRIPES, IT APPEARS TO HAVE ITS OWN INTERNAL ENERGY SOURCE AND IS SO MASSIVE THAT IT IS ALMOST A SMALL STAR.

    THIS SPECIAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE REPORT BROUGHT TO YOU BY NASA.

    MARINER MAPS ENTIRE MARTIAN SURFACE...PIONEER HALFWAY TO JUPITER...SURVEYING OUR EARTH'S RESOURCES...NEW ADVANCES IN AERONAUTICS...AND THE LAST TWO APOLLO FLIGHTS TO THE MOON. 1972... A YEAR OF SIGNIFICANT ACHIEVEMENT...THESE ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS...

    THE MYSTERIOUS RED PLANET MARS IS NOT NEARLY AS PUZZLING AS IT USED TO BE, THANKS TO THIS SPACECRAFT...MARINER NINE. MARINER NINE HAS ORBITED MARS CONTINUOUSLY FOR MORE THAN HALF A MARTIAN YEAR...PROBING, SENSING.
