http://www.planetary.org/explore/space-topics/space-missions/missions-to-mars.html

Initial stages of Mars exploration- **Missions to Mars**

Mars has historically been unfriendly to Earth’s attempts to visit it. More missions have been attempted to Mars than to any other place in the Solar System except the Moon, and about half of the attempts have failed. Some of these failures occurred because Mars was the first planet Earth attempted to explore, and the early exploration attempts taught us many lessons that have made other missions more successful. But many failures have occurred recently, proving again and again that space exploration is very, very difficult. But since 1996, Mars exploration has undergone a Renaissance, with data from four orbiters and four landed missions developing a revolutionary new view of Mars as an Earth-like world with a complex geologic history.

**Glossary**:-

Renaissance: Rebirth of a modern age or the revival of European art and literature under the influence of classical models in the 14th–16th centuries.

Orbiters:- spacecraft designed to go into orbit, especially one that does not land.

Revolutionary:- Involving or causing a complete or dramatic change.
