On Mars, low atmospheric pressure means that water would freeze or boil away within minutes. However, this book shows that the red planet bears scars from ancient river deltas, channels, and powerful torrents. The author speculates on how this might be possible and explores nine other mysteries of Mars' geomorphology and climate. What killed its magnetic field? Is there or has there been life on Mars? With the answers open for debate, he shows readers how they can live the excitement of planetary exploration themselves. By analyzing images from the main probes, they might find something new or interpret what they see in an original way.
