Description


"An easy-to-follow and alluring narrative . . . instructive and captivating."--School Library Journal

What would it be like to travel to Mars? Find out, in this incredible book, written in coordination with the world-famous American Museum of Natural History.


Perhaps no planet has stirred our imagination more than Mars. And this book, based on the American Museum of Natural History's exhibit "Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration," provides an extraordinary introduction to the Red Planet. Through breathtaking images from NASA, and information sent to Earth from satellites, budding astronomers and astronauts can explore Mars's climate and features--and find out what it would take for a human to travel there.
