From ancient mythologies to modern media, Mars has captured our imagination for thousands of years. Today Mars is a cold, dry desert but missions to the planet have discovered that it was once much more like our own warm, wet Earth. Could we find evidence that life once existed on Mars? With new and more ambitious international missions launching in 2020 and beyond, humans will delve ever deeper into the mysteries of Mars. The more we learn about Mars, the more we learn about ourselves and our own tiny place in the universe.
