A LIVING ARGUMENT FOR THE EXPLORATION AND COLONIZATION OF MARS.

After robot probes, men on Mars ! Thanks in large part to R. Zubrin, there is now a growing fascination with the Red Planet.
A pioneer of space exploration,Robert Zubrin. His bestseller « The Case for Mars » elicited a flood of over 5000 letters from enthusiasts all over the world !

In August 1998, at Boulder, Colorado, 700 Mars lovers met in the first world assembly and founded the Mars Society. Financed by enthusiasts and other foundations, the Mars Society today comprises of some 6,000 members from all countries and includes many scientists, engineers, astronauts such as Buzz Aldrin and Winston Scott and personalities like James Cameron, the director of Titanic. In France, the Mars Society is represented by the association Planet Mars, with Richard Heidmann as its president.

This book describes how, in the presence of a suitable political will, man could undertake the exploration of the Red Planet in the next few decades for much less than the 450 billion Dollars budgeted by NASA during the senior President Bush’s administration. Many questions such as the search for life, identifying resources with a view of establishing a permanent settlement, generating fuel in situ, etc. have been brilliantly dealt with and developed in this much anticipated book.

A manned mission to Mars and the first human steps on Martian soil would be a colossal achievement for the whole of humanity.

« Man will not stay forever in his cradle, the Earth. The yearning towards light and space will manifest itself timidly at first, reaching only to the upper reaches of the atmosphere. Then it will encompass the entire Solar neighborhood. The cosmos will provide man with mountains of bread and fathomless deeps of power. » (Constantin Tsiolkovski )

Here is a book which will re-evoke the spirit of the real America, the America of the pioneers.
