Destination, MarsBook - 2000
In this completely revised and updated look at Mars, award-winning science writer Seymour Simon takes young astronomers on an unforgettable tour of the red planet. He examines old beliefs about bug-eyed monsters and "canals," as well as the newest discoveries by recent Mars Global Surveyor and Pathfinder space missions. Breathtaking NASA photographs highlight some of the spectacular physical features of the Martian surface. Destination: Mars is a great introduction to one of our nearest neighbors in space--a planet scientists hope we will one day explore in person.
