Mars (Giant)
by Giles Sparrow
The planet Mars has always fascinated humanity, and the findings of the past decade have revolutionized our ideas about our fiery neighbour – revealing its watery past and geological similarity to Earth.

This giant volume, filled with the latest and most magnificent images to be sent back from Curiosity, will walk you in the footsteps of the NASA probes and rovers that have been surveying the Red Planet from 1964 until the present day.

Experience the planet’s other-worldly beauty as you hover over sinister dust devils, immense icecaps and textured rock formations. Mars will take you on a sensational journey from the North Pole through to the Southern Highlands, depicting all sides, seasons, channels and chasms of this unfamiliar planet like never before.

Detailed and accessible essays explain how the Red Planet was formed, its internal and external structure, weather systems and unique geographical features, as well as evidence of water and, of course, microscopic life.

Featuring over 200 spectacular images and colour diagrams, an atlas of the surface and details of the most recent discoveries, Mars is the perfect introduction to this new world.
