  /TI   MARS INVASION COUNTING DOWN 12 CRAFT TO GO IN 10 YEARS 
  JN=, JC=, PD=, PY=  Arizona Republic (AR) - Tuesday, November 5, 1996 
  AU=  By: David L. Chandler, Boston Globe 
  ED=, /SH, SH=, PG=  Edition: Final Chaser  Section: Front  Page: A1 
    Word Count: 898 
     
    TEXT: 
  /LP, /TX  At 10:11 a.m. Wednesday, if all goes well, a Delta II rocket will blast off 
    from  Cape  Canaveral, Fla., the first of a battery of exploratory missions 
    to the bitterly cold, bone-dry - and possibly life-bearing - planet Mars. 
     
       Ten days later, a Russian spacecraft bound for the red planet is to lift 
    off  from  Baikonur  Cosmodrome  in  Kazakstan. About two weeks after that, 
    another  American rocket is to take off, launching a craft designed to land 
    on Mars and send out a  robotic vehicle to prowl the nearby landscape. 
     
  /TX  After a hiatus of more than two decades, the exploration of our neighboring 
    planet  is  about  to  resume in earnest: Over 10 years, the United States, 
    Russia and Japan combined hope to dispatch no fewer than a dozen spacecraft 
    to scour the Martian terrain and probe beneath its surface. 
       "There  are  three  primary  goals  for  this wave of exploration," said 
    Wesley  Huntress,  head  of  space science for the National Aeronautics and 
    Space Administration. 
     
       "First,  the  search  for  life,  past  or present. Second, a search for 
    evidence  of  liquid water. And third, a search for resources that could be 
    used to support a sustained human presence. The common thread is water." 
     
       The  first rocket will carry the Mars Global Surveyor, a probe that will 
    swing  into  Martian  orbit  in  August  and  begin  mapping the surface in 
    unprecedented detail, a job that will take two years. 
     
       The  Mars  Pathfinder, programmed for a more direct route, is to set out 
    in  December.  It  is  scheduled to make a bouncy landing July 4, protected 
    from  the  force of impact by 24 huge air bags. After coming to a rest, the 
    four-sided  craft  is to unfold like the petals of a flower, exposing solar 
    panels, cameras and other instruments. 
     
       After  checking  out  its  surroundings,  it  is  to  dispatch a robotic 
    vehicle, about the size of a carry-on suitcase, to explore the nearby area, 
    near  the outflow of an ancient river. That location, scientists hope, will 
    yield  rocks  carried  downstream  from  several  areas, providing one-stop 
    shopping for a variety of Martian geology. 
     
       Russia's  first  probe,  Mars  96,  is to be launched Nov. 16 and should 
    reach the planet in September. Once it goes into orbit around Mars, it will 
    separate  into  five  parts:  An orbiter to map the surface, two landers to 
    study  the surface conditions in two locations, and two dart-shaped devices 
    to probe conditions a few feet below the surface. 
     
       Thus, by late next year, eight machines are scheduled to be hard at work 
    to expand our knowledge of Mars - a neighbor suddenly more fascinating than 
    ever. 
     
       The  interest  has  intensified  after  an announcement in August of the 
    discovery of what may be the fossil remains of microbes in a Martian rock - 
    making  it  the  only  other  place in the universe for which there is some 
    direct evidence, albeit inconclusive, of life, at least in the past. 
     
       Over   10  years,  the  planned  flotilla  will  consist  of  nine  U.S. 
    spacecraft,  two  or more from Russia and one Japanese probe to study Mars' 
    upper atmosphere.
