The first person to walk on Mars is already alive. Soon we could be routinely sending people there. Think of this book as your Lonely Planet for the Red Planet. Learn everything you need to know about your trip. From essential preparations for your journey, through the local climate and landscape, things to do, places to visit and the background, culture and natural history of the latest “must-visit” destination for humankind.

Activities for your trip include: sandboarding, hiking up Olympus Mons, glacier ice trekking and a visit to the magnificent oxygen factories of the Tharsis Bulge.
