So You Want To...
Go On A Mission To Mars
This is the ultimate trip! Co-ordinates for a mission to Mars have been locked into your navigation computer. But there are a few things you need to know before getting there. Are you ready for the gruelling seven-month journey? The space food served on the rocket is hardly award-winning. Even the planet itself will not seem welcoming with its epic dust storms and its freezing winter temperatures. But the sunsets will be spectacular and Earth is just a green and blue speck away.
Written as a child’s explorer guide and packed with scientific facts about our inspirational nearest neighbour, this book is guaranteed to inspire any young scientist.
