To MARS with MER - MER the MissionORAL HISTORY
In the course of researching and developing "To MARS
with MER" and its 6 video programs, P2K has been fortunate to spend many
hours in conversation with the men and women behind the rovers, whose hard work

NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers project really came together, in more
detail than any broadcast could ever find time for. In this section, you can
read some of the fascinating "Inside Story" of NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers
project, in these pages of ORAL HISTORY.
