Launch Date: Viking 1: Viking 2: August 20, 1975 September 9, 1975 Destination: Mars Orbital Insertion Dates: Viking 1: Viking 2: June 19, 1976 August 7, 1976 What was the Viking Program? Most ambitious mission sent to Mars Most expensive mission sent to Mars Searched for Martian Life The lander weighed in at 572 kg
While the orbiter weighed in at 883 kg...
That's like three heavy-weight sumo wrestlers
tide together floating in space. It took the Viking 1 eleven months from take off, to landing, the Viking 2 took one year and six days. Analyzed atmosphere and surface of Mars Took pictures of Mars' surface Focus of Research Taking Global Photos Analyzing the Atmosphere Searching for Life 95% 3% 2% Findings and Discoveries No Life Slow Climate Change Soil Characteristics Water Ice Carbon Dioxide Ice Different forms of Ice Lived: August 20, 1975 - August 17, 1980 Lived: September 9, 1975 - July 25, 1978 Life Span: 6 years, 3 months, 19 days Reason: Fuel Depletion Viking 1 Orbiter Viking 2 Orbiter Reason: Fuel Leak Life Span: 4 years, 11 months, 29 days Lived: July 20, 1976 - April 11, 1980 Life Span: 3 years, 8 months, 23 days Reason: Human Error Lived: September 9, 1975 - July 25, 1978 Life Span: 4 years, 11 months, 29 days Reason: Battery Failure Viking 1 Lander Viking 2 Lander None of the Viking machinery is still active Main Instruments for Research Imaging System Atmospheric Water Detector Infrared Thermal Mapper Seismometer Biological Laboratory Conclusion Mars Mapping Tools Meteorology Tools The Flight Launch Vehnicle Titan III-E/Centaur Sources:
