Our Planet and Mars have a common past. Eventually, they will share the same future and some of the incredible technological development for the Martian missions is already being applied on our Planet. This lecture will travel across time, getting an overview on how our knowledge on Mars was built. Images and fresh scientific results will be presented, especially those obtained by scientists working with the NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers mission. The lecture will also show how some of the instruments that equipped the rovers Spirit and Opportunity are being applied on industry, environment or even archaeology.
