Mars Odyssey

2001 Mars Odyssey is part of NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the red planet. The mission is mapping the distribution of many chemical elements and minerals on the martian surface. Its maps led to the discovery of vast amounts of water ice just below the surface in the planet’s polar regions.
