Description S94-43206 (8 September 1994) --- The Mars Pathfinder landing site, Ares Vallis, is in the Chryse Planitia region in the northern hemisphere of Mars. It is near the site explored by the Viking 1 Lander in 1977. The landing ellipse, 100 kilometers by 200 kilometers (60 by 120 miles) is 850 kilometers (527 miles) southeast from the Viking site. In this mosaic, made from Viking orbiter data, north is up. The mosaic shows the large outflow channels that emptied into Chryse Planitia. Ares Vallis flowed to the northwest from the southeast across the landing site. The channel formed from the release of water from the Martian subsurface and flowed across the surface creating the channels and the large islands (just to the south and northeast of the landing ellipse). The landing site itself is a very smooth depositional surface where the flood waters deposited the sediments carved from the channeling event. Landing at this location should allow the analyses of a wide variety of rock types carried by the flood.

Description S96-13428 (6 August 1996) --- This artist's rendering shows Pathfinder's unique descent to the surface of Mars. The spacecraft, enclosed in a cocoon of airbags, has just been severed from the tether which connected it to a huge parachute and Viking-derived heatshield used to slow the spacecraft's speed after entry in the Martian atmosphere. Once the spacecraft comes to a halt, the airbags will deflate and the spacecraft will stand itself side up, then open its panels to expose its solar panels. As the Sun rises over Mars, Pathfinder will power on, along with a miniature companion rover, called Sojourner, which sits on the inside of one of its panels. Sojourner will use one of two exit ramps to roll off the lander and drive onto the surface of Mars. There it will begin a week of science experiments on the surface of Mars, while the lander takes panoramic photographs of the Martian terrain. The Mars Pathfinder mission is managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C., and is scheduled for launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, atop a Delta II expendable launch vehicle on December 2, 1996.

Description S99-04192 (1997) --- Sojourner, the Mars Pathfinder rover named after former slave and famous abolitionist Sojourner Truth, is visited many years after its mission by a descendant of its namesake, in this artist's rendering. Like the human, Sojourner the rover paved the way for those that followed. This image produced for NASA by Pat Rawlings, (SAIC).

Description S99-04198 (1998) --- Planners feel the microscopic formations in Mars meteorite ALH84001, found in Antarctica, and the highly diverse samples of rocks believed to have been strewn about by ancient rivers seen at the Mars Pathfinder landing site, provide a strong motive for sending human exobiologists and geologists to the Red Planet. This artist's rendering depicts two such scientists. Unlike the meteorite, the sedimentary deposits evident in recent Mars Global Surveyor images could contain fossils visible under ordinary magnification, according to many scientists. This image produced for NASA by Pat Rawlings, (SAIC). Technical concepts for NASA's Exploration Office, Johnson Space Center (JSC).

Description S99-04196 (1997) --- The Carl Sagan Memorial Station, previously known as the Mars Pathfinder Lander, proved that a high degree of knowledge and innovation, coupled with a bit of luck, could put a very-low cost spacecraft on the surface of Mars. Depicted here by an aritist, the lander and rover surpassed their initial design life and went on to return many high resolution images of the ancient flood-washed plain of Ares Valles. This art work was produced for NASA by Pat Rawlings, (SAIC). Technical concepts for NASA's Exploration Office, Johnson Space Center (JSC).
