The Red Rover Goes to Mars project was a path-breaking partnership between an advocacy organization, The Planetary Society; a government agency, NASA; and a privately held company, the LEGO Company. The project ran from 2000 to 2004 and provided hands-on opportunities for students around the world to participate directly in real missions to Mars.
At MSSS, the Student Scientists worked as a team to select three sites to image. Initially they chose a wide range of geological features, including crater rims, slopes, valleys, canyons, polar layered terrain, and chaotic terrain. Then, based on their knowledge of the various regions of Mars and their desire to image different types of landforms, they narrowed their selection to three sites.
