About the Authors
  • An essential reference source on Mars exploration from space, blending scientific and historical data with detailed and unique illustrations. This two-volume set charts the chronological history of Mars exploration through missions from the dawn of the Space Age to the end of the Curiosity mission in 2014. It includes information on missions that were planned and never flew, as well as unsuccessful missions. This atlas is accessible to space enthusiasts, but the bibliography and meticulous detail make it a particularly valuable reference for academic researchers and students working in planetary science and planetary mapping, and in the history of space exploration.

    • Features annotated maps, photographs, tables and detailed descriptions, covering every Mars mission in chronological order
    • Includes rare and never before published data and information on historical and modern Mars exploration
    • Hundreds of illustrations, most newly created for these volumes, show Mars exploration in a systematic manner never attempted before
    • An accessible guide to both the scientific development and historical background of Mars exploration
