Summary "Using analysis from previous human and automated space programs, the authors provide a credible scenario of the first human landing on the Red Planet. This unique book will help everyone interested in the space program to understand the clear benefits of sending a human crew to the surface of Mars. Sustained long-term public and political support for the program is a challenge to be faced and met."--Jacket
