The Planetary Society developed Mars Stations, a part of the Red Rover Goes to Mars project, in order to give people around the world a chance to enjoy the challenge and excitement of exploring another planet. By visiting and logging in to a Mars Station, you can remotely drive a LEGO® rover across a Mars terrain, seeing through the rover's Web camera "eye," just like mission scientists use robotic rovers to sense and explore the surface of Mars.

Our Mars Station simulates Mars South Pole. The Martian South Polar Region was first imaged by Mariner 7. The south polar region is part of the highlands of Mars, consisting of old, crater terrain, and other interesting geologic features. Some of the features of the south pole are dunefields, polar cap, layered terrain, and water flows. The Mars '98 lander was supposed to land in the south polar region of Mars.
