Space exploration has come a long way since the days when early astronomers thought they could see canals that had been built on Mars through their simple telescopes. Today’s scientists have actually sent probes to the Red Planet that have sent back vital information about Mars which has debunked some myths but also created some new mysteries. Exploring Planet Mars looks at the scientific facts about Earth’s nearest neighbor and delves into future exploration of the planet—possibly even colonization! Topics include
• the history of Earth’s relationship to Mars
• the various probes that have been sent to the planet
• what scientists think Mars was like thousands of years ago and what it may be like thousands of years from now
• signs of life on Mars?
