"Space exploration represents one of the triumphs of the twentieth century, but its story would be incomplete without looking at the disasters that occurred along the way. Vogt discusses the perils of space flight and relates some of the harrowing escapes and full-fledged calamities that have occurred. Even readers well-versed in NASA history may find new material here, as mishaps from the Soviet space program are related as well. Photographs, including many in color, appear on nearly every double-page spread. Despite the tales of adversity, Vogt encourages readers to remember the many successes in space exploration, commenting, "each failure takes us a stop closer to the stars."--Booklist

"You may never visit the Red Planet in person. But you can experience firsthand in these pages its beauty and uniqueness. You can learn about Mars's past, its land, and its soil. You can climb its mountains, and descend into its craters. Like the twin rovers that have been roaming around on the surface, relaying back to us pictures of what they see, you can explore Mars for yourself. And you don't even have to put on a space suit!" "Complementing veteran science writer Gregory Vogt's engrossing text are some of the best images ever taken of Mars recent and past. Some of the images show what we have learned about Mars's interior. Others show us how Mars looks in different "seasons." All inform us of how Mars is similar to, or different from, other planets in the Solar System." "So get ready to begin the exciting visual tour offered in these pages. You really can leave Earth - without leaving your chair!"--Jacket
