Mars Viking 1 Lander 
Full Scale

The Viking project consisted of launches of two separate spacecraft to Mars, Viking 1, launched on 20 August 1975, and Viking 2, launched on 9 September 1975. Each spacecraft consisted of an orbiter and a lander. After orbiting Mars and returning images used for landing site selection, the orbiter and lander detached and the lander entered the martian atmosphere and soft-landed at the selected site. 

The orbiters continued imaging and other scientific operations from orbit while the landers deployed instruments on the surface. The lander was encased in a bioshield at launch to prevent contamination by terrestrial organisms.
