About this book

Covering the first five decades of the exploration of Mars, The International Atlas of Mars Exploration is the most detailed visual reference available. It brings together, for the first time, a wealth of information from diverse sources, featuring annotated maps, photographs, tables and detailed descriptions of every Mars mission in chronological order, from the dawn of the space age to Mars Express. Special attention is given to landing site selection, including reference to some missions that were planned but never flew. Phobos and Deimos, the tiny moons of Mars, are covered in a separate section. Contemporary maps reveal our improving knowledge of the planet's surface through the latter half of the twentieth century. Written in non-technical language, The International Atlas of Mars Exploration is a unique resource for anyone interested in planetary sciences, the history of space exploration and cartography, while the detailed bibliography and chart data are especially useful for academic researchers and students.

Media reviews

"A wonderful resource for armchair explorers."
– BBC Sky at Night

"This is without question the definitive reference work on Mars exploration. It is a must for anyone interested in the planet – from laypersons to practising planetary scientists. If Mars had its own family scrapbook, this would be it. The reviewer can hardly wait for volume 2 [...] Essential. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."
– T. D. Oswalt, Choice
