This is a documentary by IMAX that focuses on the development and operation of the Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity. It focuses on the story of NASA’s Mars Rover mission which led to the construction of two robotic vehicles named Spirit and Opportunity which were thrust into space and sent to Mars’s surface. They successfully landed in the summer period of 2003. These two robotic vehicles reveal an extensive footage of the surface of Mars which gives viewers a new experience of how another world would look like. Some few actual photographs from Mars were used despite computer-generated animation being used in abundance.
