Our moon and terrestrial planets have stimulated human interest by both the scientist and the general public. Mars, in particular, has generated voluminous romantic science fiction, and a vast body of technical literature. Thousands of articles and books, mostly in the last two decades have accumulated. This is largely due to the data returned from the dozen spacecraft sent between 1964 and 1975. Automated spacecraft data have been returned as late as 1982.
