In a timely and fascinating book, Gloria Skurzynski's insight and enthusiasm turn mystery into discovery. From Copernicus through the Viking missions to the recent exciting and ground-breaking Pathfinder mission, the author vividly traces Mars exploration.

State-of-the-art imagery from NASA's Pathfinder mission and elsewhere leaps from the pages (sometimes in 3-D!). Artists' renderings of Mars and Mars spacecraft help us understand recent events and what can happen in the future...

As atronomer Carl Sagan said, "Mars beckons, it is the world next door, the nearest planet on which human explorers could safely land." Read DISCOVER MARS and see how technology is bringing us ever closer to that first human step onto the red dust surface of planet Mars.
