A mind-boggling infographic of all the missions from Earth to Mars, and where they wound up


io9.com

The Martian rover Curiosity, also known as the Mars Science Lab, is set to launch in the next few weeks. While you're jumping up and down waiting for us to get a closer look at Mars, you can enjoy looking back through history at all the missions we've launched to the Red Planet — and where they are now.

This infographic was created in 2009 by Brian Crystie Design, a group that has created a number of beautiful science-oriented infographics. When you look at something like this, you realize that humans really aren't going to give up on the dream of going to space any time soon. Look how

I thought this was incredibly interesting.


This article contains an infographic that details all the missions to mars to date and a few future ones as well.

It's interesting to see how many of the missions have failed to reach the planet. Also interesting that since the 60's we have been sending craft to examine Mars.

I hope you all enjoy.

That infographic was created in 2009. Not really Breaking News

Incredibly revealing. I had know idea 90% of all missions failed. Thats certainly not a way to learn much about Mars.

S&F!

Right-click. Saved! for future reference. Too bad we don't have an infographic for missions they haven't told us about. Maybe that will come later.

Totally OT but as a moderator you might want to change your Avatar. I find it incredibly difficult to read your posts as I can't take my eyes off your Avatar...

Is that Kate Winslet? She is just amazing in that pic...
