The Red Planet

book cover image: Mars : our future on the Red Planet

Is habitation of Mars really possible?  Can it happen in our lifetime? In October 2015, NASA declared Mars "an achievable goal".Leonard David's Mars : our future on the Red Planet shows the science behind such a mission and looks at the challenges facing those brave individuals who will first land and learn to live on Mars.  This is an amazing step in human history and the author's accounts and explanations make it all readable and believeable.  This is a perfect summer evening read at home or at the cottage when the sky is clear, the stars are out and our imaginations soar.
