The Mars Polar Lander spacecraft arrives on Mars on 3 December. The ship was launched by NASA last January 3 and has spent 11 months in space, the landing will occur near the South Pole of Martian.

The ship is equipped with three cameras: the first will collect images of the landing, the second will offer stereoscopic views and the third will take planes close to the crust of Mars. Mars Polar Lander will send the images of Mars for 60 days to Earth, but if there were no problems I could continue working another 30 days.
