For Students Free Space Exploration Mini-Poster
The solar system is about to get very busy. The action starts in June with the launch of the first of two Mars rovers and the hectic pace - from the rings of Saturn to the tail of a comet - continues up for the next year and a half.
Keep up with the action with a printable timeline of major solar system exploration events from mid-2003 to 2006. Note: The poster looks best when its printed on 11 X 17 paper.
