Mars Up Close: Inside the Curiosity Mission
by Marc Kaufman
Foreword by Elon Musk
With images never published before, and computer-enhanced with colors that make you want to spend your next vacation on Mars, this is the only book that explains everything, detail by detail and moment by moment, about the most ambitious space expedition the human race has ever undertaken.

National Geographic and science journalist Marc Kaufman combine inside stories, fascinating facts, and eye-popping pictures, some never before seen, of the red planet and NASA's groundbreaking Curiosity mission.

Renowned author Kaufman spent two years embedded with the engineers and scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, cheering on the rover's spine-tingling landing, learning the backstory of anticipated findings, and witnessing the inescapable frustrations that come from operating a $2.5-billion multitasking robot on a planet 35 million miles from Earth.

For pop science, space, and technology lovers, Mars Up Close takes you inside the Curiosity Mission, showcasing the people, science, and stories central to this unprecedented exploration of the Red Planet.
