Liquid water is known to have flowed across the surface of Mars, a requirement for life as we know it. This spectacular volume covers in detail the NASA program for long-term Mars exploration, with illus. ranging from B&W photos of the early days at the JPL to stunning full-color photos sent back from Mars by the Pathfinder. Also, colorful illus. of what future rockets & landing missions might look like. The essays by scientific experts contain a wealth of info. on Mars exploration.
