For millions of years, these two planets have lived side by side, each minding its own business. Now, human beings are ready to peek through the shades and find out how the neighbor lives. Plan "Your Summer Vacation on Mars" with this month's Spotlight feature. Make sure you're prepared for the July sky-watching festivities by investigating the hotlist of Mars-related websites.
