"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Roving Mars -- IMAX movie

The new IMAX movie "Roving Mars" will feature footage of two rovers, that rolled around Mars for two years, into to a seamless film. The astronomer who helped create them, Steven Squyres, is the film’s main narrator.

Pictures of Mars taken by robotic rovers, have been seen on television or over the internet by millions of people. But the new film, "Roving Mars," edits the photos in a film which is projected on the, “larger than life” IMAX screen. Visit to find out more about the unique IMAX experience.

The rovers' principal scientific investigator, Steven Squyres, who is the movie's main narrator, said it gives an authentic feeling of actually being on the Red Planet. "Every scene you see is real data from the rover; it's just processed in different ways," Squyres said. "There is not a single fake shot of Mars." Squyres, a professor of astronomy at Cornell University, came up with the plan for two rovers in 1987, but making it a reality took more than a decade.

Thousands of workers from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory also appear in the film.

This difficulties before and after the two spacecrafts touched down onto opposite sides of Mars in 2004, is the central narrative of the film, which was written, produced and directed by George Butler. Butler has made several documentaries but may be best known for the book and film "Pumping Iron," which introduced Arnold Schwarzenegger to mainstream Hollywood.

Walt Disney is the distributor of the project. Roving Mars Official Website.
