Can astronauts reach Mars by 2035? Absolutely, says Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to walk on the moon. Celebrated astronaut, brilliant engineer, bestselling author, Aldrin believes it is not only possibly but vital to America’s future to keep pushing the space frontier outward for the sake of exploration, science, development, commerce, and security. What we need, he argues, is a commitment by the U.S. President as rousing as JFK’s promise to reach the moon by the end of the 1960s—an audacious, inspiring goal-and a unified vision for space exploration. In Mission to Mars, Aldrin plots that trajectory, stressing that American-led space exploration is essential to the economic and technological vitality of the nation and the world. Do you dare to dream big? Then join Aldrin in his thought provoking and inspiring Mission to Mars.

Could life have previously flourished on Mars? Will humans be able to travel there one day? Can humans one day colonize the red planet? NASA scientists have been interested in answering questions like these for a long time. In November 2011, NASA sent the rover Curiosity to Earth's nearest planetary neighbor. By gathering information about Mars's climate and geology, the robot is helping scientists uncover the secrets of the planet and its past.Since its launch, Curiosity has made some amazing discoveries. Just seven weeks after landing, the rover found an ancient streambed where water once flowed for thousands of years. In addition, from drilling into Martian rock, the rover detected the key chemicals necessary for life--sulfur, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and carbon. And Curiosity's measurement of radiation on Mars shows levels similar to that at the International Space Station. These discoveries suggest that some parts of Mars could have been habitable--and may be again in the future.Learn more about the red planet and see what else Curiosity has uncovered!

The objective of the book is to find an answer to the rationale behind the human quest for the Mars exploration. As a comprehensive assessment for this query is undertaken, it is realized that the basic question ‘Why Mars?’ seeks various responses from technological, economic and geopolitical to strategic perspectives. The book is essentially targeted to understand India’s desire to reach Mars. In the process, it also undertakes some implicit questioning of Mars programmes of various other states essentially to facilitate the setting up of the context for an assessment. The book is divided into two parts: Part I: This covers both science and politics associated with Mars missions in global scenario and discusses the salient features of various Mars Missions undertaken by various countries. Part II: This provides details in regards to India’s Mars Mission.

Mars has always signaled to the mankind when it would travel high in the night sky. The ancient people have assumed that this rust-red planet was the god of war and therefore, they christened it with the name “Mars”. The early explorers were armed with newly forms of invented telescopes discovered that Mars exhibited seasonal color changes and were subjected to dust storms that used to encircle the globe and might even have had several channels that could have crisscrossed the surface. The recent explorers make use of the advanced technology and the robotic surrogates to extend their reach out to the planet Mars. With the use of the advanced technology, they have discovered that Mars is much more interesting and the complex planet in the Solar System. As per the claims of the present explorers that pieces of Mars have even arrived on the Earth as meteorites and these particles are pointing out to the possible existence of life on Mars. This has resulted in the growth of the active interests of the explorers to gain impetus about the living conditions on Mars.

How feasible is a manned Mars flight? How soon will it be possible? How long will it take? What kind of spacecraft will make the journey? What kind of data will be collected? What are the advantages of a manned flight over an unmanned? Mission to Mars discusses these questions and more in this serious, documented treatment of the not-too-distant manned expedition to Mars. The shuttle has proved successful and an enthusiastic boost to American interest in space. But while many laypeople wonder “what’s next,” scientists are planning what they feel is the next logical step. Drawing on the vast amount of data sent back by Viking orbiters and probes, and existing developments in propulsion and space technology, space experts all over have been speculating, analyzing, and exchanging ideas relative to the long-awaited mission to Mars. Other factors, critical to an intelligent discussion of such an undertaking are included here: spaceship design and assembly, propulsion systems, navigation principles, life support systems, selecting a landing site, scientific activities on Mars, cost factors, political and social issues.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the optimal crew size for long-duration space missions, specifically the first manned expedition to Mars. Manned space mission design is based primarily on the crew size, so this information is critical from the onset of mission conception. An initial position was established by reviewing mission reports, plans, and related crew studies. Data was gathered by surveying a population of crewmembers from various fields who work in environments similar to those encountered by a Mars expedition crew, to include astronauts, Antarctic and underwater research teams, air crews, analog mission crews, and missile crews. The researcher showed that larger crews, while more demanding with regard to vehicle, trajectory, life support, and overall mission design, are better suited for such long duration missions.
