Exploration to Mars picks up again in the 1990s, but with mixed results: seven probes are lost. But US space agency NASA enjoys two successes, both in 1997. In July, Mars Pathfinder places the robotic rover Sojourner on the planet. Then in September Mars Global Surveyor, launched a year earlier, enters orbit and goes on to study the entire surface, atmosphere, and interior of the planet. Both Pathfinder and Surveyor collect detailed data about the planet and are able to detect the presence of minerals.
