Mars Exploration: Fact and Fantasy

Mars Exploration: Fact and Fantasy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Named after the Roman god of war (for its reddish color), Mars has long been an object of fascination for mankind — the setting for numerous science fiction novels, and more recently, the target of robotic probes launched from Earth. For this informative coloring book, illustrator Bruce LaFontaine chronicles both factual as well as fantastic aspects of Mars. 44 dramatic, finely detailed ready-to-color illustrations depict a scene from Ray Bradbury's classic novel Martian Chronicles (1948); Hollywood's film version of Martian war machines in War of the Worlds (1953); Mars probes such as the Pathfinder/Sojourner (1997), and the Global surveyor currently orbiting and photographing Mars; the Martian meteorite discovered in Antarctica in 1996; views of the Martian moons Phobos and Deimos; and a fantasized transformation of Mars into an Earth-like planet by the year 2300 A.D. Informative captions accompany each illustration.

Synopsis:
