As we look back to the beginnings of the space race, 2009 is also the year for looking forward to humankind’s next step toward the stars. In the spirit of books that once imagined colonies on the moon, Patrick O’Brien has created a unique look at your first trip to Mars. Using the most up-to- date designs and theories of what it will take to establish a base on Mars, you are off on an incredible journey, over 35 million miles to the red planet. Filled with details, and vividly brought to life, this is an adventure that you are never going to forget.

A few drawings of "Martians" may be too much for sensitive children, but an otherwise good book.

Really good story and pictures for a small boy who's interested in space travel!
