When NASA’s Pathfinder spacecraft landed on Mars on July 4,it released a "rover," a small vehicle called Sojourner.

Minerals are naturally occurring inorganic substances required in trace amounts for normal body functions such as the development of strong bones and teeth, proper muscle and nerve functions, and construction of red blood cells.

Like vitamins, these essential minerals are not produced by humans, so they must be consumed on a regular basis. Many low-income mineral-exporting countries have seen their per capita income decline or their standards of living stagnate over the last several decades.
