Good: Mars has an atmosphere, but it's exceedingly thin. The dishes are sometimes constructed of a conductive wire mesh whose openings are smaller than the wavelength being observed. One NASA plan envisions bombarding Phobos with small, spiky spherical rovers called hedgehogs. At the moment we don't have the technology to actually land a human on Mars, but in 1997 the first Mars rover was sent up into space and landed on the surface of the planet, giving us photos of the planet and data about the composition of it.
