A Traveler's Guide To Mars The Mysterious Landscapes of the Red Planet by William K. Hartmann Conceived and created like a real Baedecker-factual, accessible, heavily illustrated, in a carry-around size-A Traveler's Guide To Mars brings together all the astonishing information scientists have recently learned about Mars, and conveys it in the engaging, lively style that made Dr. Hartmann the first-ever winner of the Carl Sagan Medal for public communication of planetary science. Taken around the planet like tourists, readers will discover mysterious dry riverbeds, the largest volcano in the solar system (three times higher than Mount Everest), a possible ancient sea floor, giant impact craters, "the face on Mars," and other wonders. Throughout is an extraordinary selection of photographs, maps, and paintings, including images from Mariner 9 and the Viking explorations, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the ongoing Mars Global Surveyor mission. Four gatefolds show the latest topographic maps of the entire Martian surface. Sidebars advise readers on what to wear and landing procedures. In addition, Hartmann's "My Martian Chronicles" spotlight his life and times as a planetary scientist. "SUPERB" - The text and images combine beautifully to tell the story of the 'new' Mars and how it got to be that way" - Ray Bradbury "A MASTERPIECE" - of scientific writing for the general reader. Until we put humans on Mars, A Traveleres Guide To Mars is likely to remain the best portrait we have of our awesome neighbor - Kim Stanley Robinson Features:
