Go On A Mission To Mars
Colin Stuart

The book

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.


Colin Stuart is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. He has written for the Guardian, the Observer, New Scientist, BBC Focus and European Space Agency, among many others. The author of half a dozen books, in 2014 Colin was awarded runner-up in the European Astronomy Journalism Prize.
