Collected by: University of Michigan, School of Information

Archived since: Mar, 2014

Description:

Our mission is to capture the public perception of the Mars rovers on their 10th anniversary, and to preserve and provide access to that information for future research.We will collect web pages that address the Mars rovers from three different perspectives on their 10th anniversary, and to preserve and provide access to that information for future research. Official government websites will provide the control information: what was officially released regarding the past ten years exploring Mars. As a counterpoint, we will also capture the popular news and science media’s relation of these events as well as the fringe (conspiracy theorizing, alien spotting and so on) perspectives and reactions.
