An explorer's guide to embarking on a manned mission to the planet Mars.
Co-ordinates for a mission to Mars have been locked into your navigation computer. But there are a few things you need to know before getting there. Are you ready for the seven-month journey and the astronaut training program? The space food served on the rocket is hardly award-winning.
Even when you arrive at your destination, the planet itself will not seem welcoming with its epic dust storms and its freezing winter temperatures. But the sunsets will be spectacular and Earth is just a green and blue speck away.
Written as an explorer's guide and packed with scientific facts about our inspirational nearest neighbour, this book is guaranteed to inspire any young scientist.
