The Viking program consisted of a pair of American space probes sent to Mars, Viking 1 and Viking 2. Each spacecraft was composed of two main parts: an orbiter designed to photograph the surface of Mars from orbit, and a lander designed to study the planet from the surface.

The orbiters also served as communication relays for the landers once they touched y of origin: United States. Refreshing the Viking Orbiter views of Mars. A few years ago, I ran across a copy of NASA Special PublicationViking Orbiter Views of Mars, at the Prairie Archives in Springfield, IL.

NASA's Viking Mission to Mars was composed of two spacecraft, Viking 1 and Viking 2, each consisting of an orbiter and a lander. The primary mission objectives were to obtain high resolution images of the Martian surface, characterize the structure and composition of the atmosphere and surface, and search for evidence of life.

The view of Viking Lander 1 from the high-resolution camera on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter reveals the spacecraft's back shell about meters ( feet) away and the heat shield nearly four times that distant.

The lander returned the first view from the surface of Mars and kept operating for more than six years after its Jlanding. The orbiter was inserted into a x 33, km, h Mars orbit on August 7, and trimmed to a h site certification orbit with a.

The center of the scene shows the entire Valles Marineris canyon system, over 3, km long and up to 8 km deep, extending from Noctis Labyrinthus, the arcuate system of graben to the west, to the chaotic terrain to the east.
