Ever since man first noticed the strange, reddish twinkle in the night sky, we have been fascinated with Mars. Since then, numerous spacecraft have voyaged to the Red Planet and revealed a world strangely familiar yet so different from our own. The past decades especially have revealed a wealth of information about our most familiar neighbor. Yet, every time we feel close to understanding Mars, new discoveries send us straight back to the drawing board. Mars continues to throw out new enticements with each landing or orbital pass made by our robotic ambassadors.

The Mars Timeline app is a tribute to humanity's effort to conquer Mars, an encyclopedia containing every mission ever sent to the Red Planet. Enjoy mission overviews, detailed technical information, and galleries of rare images. Enjoy the story of Mars exploration.

Mars Discovery

The app has a very clean, finished look, with clear attention to details. The background at the top of the page creates an atmosphere of exploration that is further reinforced by the timeline and mission information. The mission information is thorough, without becoming boring, and the photos at the end add to the reader's awareness of the mission. The inclusion of so many missions highlights how little the public knows about the great national endeavors to expand our world into the depths of space. I found the app a stimulating account of the role Mars has played in our exploration of space.
