1997: Communications are suddenly lost with the Mars Pathfinder space probe, which, along with its lightweight wheeled robotic Mars rover named Sojourner, explored and analyzed the Martian atmosphere, climate and geology since its landing on July 4, 1997. Although mission managers tried to restore full communications during the following five months, the successful mission was terminated on March 10, 1998.
