The Search for Life on Mars : The Greatest Scientific Detective Story of All Time
- Astronomy, General Science
The history of our continuing quest
Mars has long excited our imaginations as the most likely other habitat for life in the solar system. As new missions are scheduled to launch this year from the U.S. and China, The Search For Life On Mars recounts the greatest scientific detective story ever.
Based on more than a hundred interviews with experts at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and elsewhere, this is the definitive story of how life's discovery has eluded us to date, and how it will be found somewhere and sometime this century. Learn about early Mars missions such as Viking 1 and 2, through to Curiosity, which continues to explore potentially habitable sites, and the Mars Insight lander, which has recorded more than 450 marsquakes since its deployment in late 2018.
