With unparalleled access to NASA’s archives, this stunning volume pays tribute to 50 years of Mars exploration.
Thanks to the latest Mars expeditions—with many more planned in the next few years—all eyes have turned to the once-mysterious red planet. This illuminating book traces our history of Mars exploration, from the earliest telescopic viewings, through NASA’s first flybys in the 1960s, to the landers in the 1970s, and the increasingly sophisticated rovers and orbiters of today. It also showcases in exquisite detail the elaborate plans for human expeditions to Mars, including NASA’s ambitious designs for crewed missions and other compelling alternative plans formulated by experts such as Buzz Aldrin. With breathtaking photographs and rare images of plans, maps, schematics, and more, including insider documents from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the story of mankind’s fascination with Mars jumps off the page.
