The statistics are staggering. More than half of all spacecrafts sent to Mars have burned up failed or smashed to bits. But for NASA the passion for Mars cannot be snuffed out and they are dreaming and planning for their next high stakes mission. The Mars: Phoenix Lander is rising from the ashes of disaster to search for signs of life in a region no spacecraft has ever been. This time around the team will follow the water and will focus on finding life on Mars' Polar Regions. Watch scientists and Daily Planet count down to the successful launch of the Mars Phoenix. With resources running low and pressure running high they must race against the clock to carry out this formidable mission. If they succeed it will be the greatest discovery of our time. If it goes wrong Mars will destroy yet another dream.
