Map of Mars - level 2

If you’d like to see the planet Mars in detail, you can. There is new video of Mars’s surface.

You can see all the mountains, craters and river beds. The video uses images which were taken by a special camera. The camera can sees Mars’s surface from 9 different angles.

The satellite with the camera started to work in 2003. Its mission was originally two years long, but it still works. The satellite has gone around Mars 12,500 times and it will continue to work until the end of 2014.

Difficult words: crater (hole in the ground), river bed (bottom of a river), satellite (machine which goes around a planet).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
