About this book

This title offers a fascinating look at the exciting future of Mars exploration. In the next decade, NASA – by itself and in collaboration with the European Space Agency – is planning a minimum of four separate missions to Mars. Destination Mars provides readers with a fascinating insider's look into the amazing projects now being developed to help the human race visit the legendary Red Planet, a thoroughly entertaining survey of the human fascination with Mars over the centuries, and an introduction to the geography, geology, and science of the planet. It finishes with an extraordinary glimpse of what it will be like to be part of a crewed mission to Mars. This volume also includes a foreword by Robert Manning, Chief Engineer of the Mars Exploration Program at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
