Artist conception of a pair of mini-rovers-Vikings on wheels on the Martian surface

A pair of mini-rovers-Vikings on wheels -- would range up to 5 kilometers (3 miles) a day, on the Martian surface, returning photographs and scientific data via a mother Orbiter. If Viking '76 produces no definitive life findings, rovers would concentrate on geology in varied terrian. They would be ready by 1984., Credit Line: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, courtesy of AIP Emilio Segrè Visual Archives
