On the vast surface of Mars, a rover named Curiosity roams in search of water and signs of life. The planet observes the rover’s movements, tracks its progress, and delights in its discoveries. But Curiosity is not the first visitor from Earth, and it won’t be the last. Mars remembers all the rovers, landers and probes that came before—and wonders who will follow in Curiosity’s tracks.
