Storyboard Text

  • Dad, how did we get samples and photos from Mars if it is so far away?
  • Well, NASA, a government owned space program, was determined to find out more about Mars.
  • So, they started the Viking program. This consisted of two space probes, Viking 1 and Viking 2.
  • One of the probes' job was to orbit Mars and take pictures, while the other one's job was to land on Mars and collect materials.
  • Viking 1 was launched on August 20, 1975, while Viking 2 was launched about a month later on September 9.
  • They both orbited and landed safely on Mars in 1976. The whole mission cost about 1 billion USD in 1970's dollar, which is roughly 11 billion USD in 2016 dollars.
