Mysteries of Mars
- How can we find current or extinct life on Mars?
- What happened to Mars's atmosphere?
- How will humans explore the Red Planet?
These are just a few of the provocative questions explored in this new special issue from the editors of Sky & Telescope. The issue contains articles written by leading experts in Mars science and exploration, including Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, science-fiction author Gregory Benford, NASA scientists Chris McKay and Matt Golombek, and rover imaging scientist Jim Bell. Loaded with spectacular photos and art, Mars: Mysteries & Marvels of the Red Planetis a must-read for anyone interested in our neighboring planet, the search for extraterrestrial life, and the future of human colonization of space.
What Sky & Telescope's Camille Carlisle, has to say:
"Okay, picking this product as one of my favorites is a little self-serving: I was the lead editor on the publication. But to learn what we know (and what we don't) about Mars, our Mars magazine is one of the best sources out there. From water on Mars and the planet's inexplicable moons to the role the Red Planet has had in science fiction, we explore every facet of what makes this little frozen planet great."
