The purpose of this book is to give all information on Mars as much as possible by telling about everything we have got to know about Mars from ancient times to all the exploratory missions taken till the present time. There is now a huge competition to find out more about Mars. Different unmanned space missions to Mars by several space agencies of various countries have collected a lot of information on the Red planet. They have explored the terrain of Mars, its atmosphere and tried to find past traces of life, water, oxygen, and any traces of fossils. Mars is mentioned in ancient history as the God of War and is part of the folk tales of several ancient civilizations including the Greek, Roman, Sumerian, Mesopotamian, Incas, and several other civilizations of the past including Babylon and others. We are not only exploring the terrain of Mars and its atmosphere, there is a huge interest to sent manned missions to Mars. All of this is not easy and manned missions to Mars are much more difficult and hazardous for the reason that the astronauts on this mission have to remain healthy; they should have a sufficient amount of oxygen to survive in travel as well as to survive the seven months-long journey. In addition to reaching Mars, they have to wait for two years when the distance between the Earth and Mars reduces and they can come back. Very few missions have been successful on the first attempt on Mars. But this must not make us afraid to send humans to Mars, and it is very important that our first human mission succeeds on its first attempt. There will not be a single spacecraft for the human mission but it will have several of them going together which will include one for housing the astronauts, another for carrying necessary supplies, third for carrying equipment, several Landers or rovers for construction activity, and others for scientific equipment, communication pieces of equipment and many other things.

The Complete Battle Mars Series This omnibus edition of the Battle Mars series contains all four books: Genocide, Fallout, Colony and Reboot. Earth is a write off. Let's move to Mars. What could go wrong? Over 80% of life on Earth is stolen in four weeks, leaving 8 billion humans without food, water, or even viable soil. Weather patterns shift causing tornados, raging fires, and rapid freezing. The governments quickly collapse in every country and people are stranded with nowhere to run. It's climate change on steroids, but this isn't even remotely a natural phenomenon. Book One: Genocide Jace and his dog, Oscar, are taking care of the herd in Colorado when the biggest tornados he's ever seen rip the earth to pieces, taking trees, cows, water, and everything else they need to live. Across America and in every country the seeds of life are sucked up into the sky. People are seeking sanctuary, but every door is closed until Jace meets a slick billionaire who claims to have a spaceship. Book Two: Fallout Titan, better known as Big Bertha, was designed as the first ship and habitat to support human life on Mars. Billions are dying topside while Jace and his team are safe inside Bertha's underground base, or are they? The unfolding disaster on Earth is looking less like a natural event and more like an intentional act of terrorism, but to what end? With two kids in tow, and a completely untrained crew, Jace is forced to make a tough decision. Book Three: Colony Jace and his crew make a home on Mars, but they're not alone. There is life on Mars, far more than anyone expected. Unable to explain how Apollo beat him to the punch, Jace spies on his enemy looking for answers. Truth is stranger than fiction. If Jace and his crew don't take control of Mars, Apollo's plan for what's left of mankind is a massive step backward. Book Four: Reboot The call to arms doesn't go unheard and every man and woman pivots into the fight. It's a desperate battle across two planets for what little is left, and Jace hits Apollo with everything he's got. In a winner-takes-all battle, who gets to decide man's place in the Universe? Jace gets his answer, and it's nothing he could have seen coming. Non-stop, fast-paced action.

In Ancient Aliens on Mars II, New York Times bestselling author Mike Bara returns the reader to Mars to examine the enduring mysteries of the Red Planet. Building on the case made in Ancient Aliens on Mars and using data acquired from sophisticated new scientific instruments like the Mars Odyssey THEMIS infrared imager, Bara shows that the region of Cydonia overlays a vast underground city full of enormous structures and devices that may still be operating. He peels back the layers of mystery to show images of tunnel systems, temples and ruins, and exposes the sophisticated NASA conspiracy designed to hide them and discredit the researchers that discovered these exotic ruins. Bara also tackles the enigma of Mars hollowed out moon Phobos, and exposes evidence from over 30 years of observations that it is artificial. Long-held myths about Mars, including claims that it is protected by a sophisticated UFO defense system, are examined and illuminated. Data from the Mars rovers Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity is examined; everything from fossilized plants to mechanical debris is exposed in images taken directly from NASA s own archives. Finally, the author offers his take on the secret history of the Red Planet and what happened to the highly advanced civilization that once flourished there."

Predating the earliest manned space mission: the first full-length science fiction novel from the acclaimed author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. First published in 1951, before the achievement of space flight, Arthur C. Clarke created this visionary tale. Renowned science fiction writer Martin Gibson joins the spaceship Ares, the world’s first interplanetary ship for passenger travel, on its maiden voyage to Mars. His mission: to report back to the home planet about the new Mars colony and the progress it has been making. In The Sands of Mars, Clarke addresses hard physical and scientific issues with aplomb—and the best scientific understanding of the times. Included are the challenges of differing air pressures, lack of oxygen, food provisions, severe weather patterns, construction on Mars, and methods of local travel—both on the surface and to the planet’s two moons. “[Clarke is] one of the truly prophetic figures of the space age.” —The New Yorker

“Last Day on Mars is thrillingly ambitious and imaginative. Like a lovechild of Gravity and The Martian, it's a rousing space opera for any age, meticulously researched and relentlessly paced, that balances action, science, humor, and most importantly, two compelling main characters in Liam and Phoebe. A fantastic start to an epic new series.” —Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of the School for Good and Evil series “Emerson's writing explodes off the page in this irresistible space adventure, filled with startling plot twists, diabolical aliens, and (my favorite!) courageous young heroes faced with an impossible task.” —Lisa McMann, New York Times bestselling author of the Unwanteds series It is Earth year 2213—but, of course, there is no Earth anymore. Not since it was burned to a cinder by the sun, which has mysteriously begun the process of going supernova. The human race has fled to Mars, but this was only a temporary solution while we have prepared for a second trip: a one-hundred-fifty-year journey to a distant star, our best guess at where we might find a new home. Liam Saunders-Chang is one of the last humans left on Mars. The son of two scientists who have been racing against time to create technology vital to humanity’s survival, Liam, along with his friend Phoebe, will be on the last starliner to depart before Mars, like Earth before it, is destroyed. Or so he thinks. Because before this day is over, Liam and Phoebe will make a series of profound discoveries about the nature of time and space and find out that the human race is just one of many in our universe locked in a dangerous struggle for survival.

Winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel • Kim Stanley Robinson’s classic trilogy depicting the colonization of Mars continues in a thrilling and timeless novel that pits the settlers against their greatest foes: themselves. Nearly a generation has passed since the first pioneers landed on Mars, and its transformation to an Earthlike planet is under way. But not everyone wants to see the process through. The methods are opposed by those who are determined to preserve their home planet’s hostile, barren beauty. Led by the first generation of children born on Mars, these rebels are soon joined by a handful of the original settlers. Against this cosmic backdrop, passions, partnerships, and rivalries explode in a story as spectacular as the planet itself. Praise for Green Mars “One of the major sagas of the [latest] generation in science fiction.”—Chicago Sun-Times “Dense as a diamond and as sharp; it makes even most good novels seem pale and insignificant by comparison.”—The Washington Post Book World “Grand in scope, meticulous in detail.”—The New York Times Book Review
