DESTINATION MARS

ANDREW MAY    Book Number: 83278    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'The Story of Our Quest to Conquer the Red Planet', now everyone is talking about Mars from Elon Musk to Ridley Scott and Donald Trump. When the Apollo astronauts walked on the Moon in 1969, many people imagined Mars would be next. Half a century later, only robots have been to the Red Planet and our astronauts rarely venture beyond Earth orbit. Interplanetary exploration is back on the agenda and Mars once again the prime destination for human expansion and colonisation. Here astrophysicist and science writer Andrew May explores the science upon which a crewed Mars mission would be based, from assembling a spacecraft in Earth orbit to surviving solar storms. With expert insight he analyses the new space race and assesses what the future holds for human life on Mars. From the Icon books cutting edge Science and Technology series. 164pp in illustrated paperback.
