Destination Mars examines how earthlings have perceived the planet throughout history -- in mythology, religion, astrology, folklore, early scientific history, science fiction, and the modern era of scientific discovery and space travel. Special attention is given to NASA's exploration of Mars, including the Mariner and Viking missions of the 1960's and 1970's, as well as NASA's two 1997 Mars missions. Profusely illustrated, this is a stunning portrait of a planet that has proven to be of enduring fascination.
