An image of NASA’s Viking 1 Mars Lander

Paul Money returns with another of his fascinating talks involving the escapades of early space exploration missions. In 1975 NASA launched an ambitious mission to search for life on the Red Planet. Consisting of two orbiters and two landers, most of the emphasis has concentrated on the landers but in this Pt 1 we look at the Viking Orbiters and the early missions that paved the way to changing our understanding of Barsoom.
