After a fiery reentry through Mar's thin atmosphere, the Lander jettisons its
heat shield, unfolds the landing legs and fires its main engine to slow to a
gentle landing on the Red Planet. With a cargo compartment
carrying an inflatable pressurized rover and a deployable solar array, the crew
can remain on the Martian surface for a full month, exploring sites with
twenty-five kilometers of the landing.
