News in Review Mars: Exploring the Red Planet

This special documentary report reflects our fascination with space travel in general, but in particular with the planet Mars. CBC's science specialist Bob McDonald provides in-depth background information on the spacecraft Mars Odyssey, the first mission to Mars since the Mars Polar Lander disappeared more than two years ago. The potential for discovery of new information on this expedition and the debate over the future of Mars exploration in general are focal points of the story.
