Legendary "space statesman" Buzz Aldrin speaks out as a vital advocate for the continuing quest to push the boundaries of the universe as we know it. As a pioneering astronaut who set foot on the moon during mankind’s first landing with Apollo 11 - and an aerospace engineer who designed an orbital rendezvous technique critical to future planetary landings - Aldrin has a vision, and in Mission to Mars he plots out the path he proposes, one that will take humans to Mars by 2035.

Critic reviews

"Colonizing space is essential for the long-term survival of the human race, and Buzz Aldrin’s book shows us how." (Stephen Hawking)
"Any time an Apollo-era astronaut steps forward with ideas for our future in space, it’s time to stop what whatever we’re doing and pay attention. Buzz Aldrin, one of the first moonwalkers, has no shortage of these ideas. And in  Mission to Mars he treats us to how, when, and why we should travel there." (Neil deGrasse Tyson)
"Buzz Aldrin has been as far from Earth as any human being, and now he’s leading the charge to go much farther, to our next epic destination: Mars." (James Cameron)

Reader was robotic.

I guess that's fitting given the book. Well thought out and a very thorough look at the options we have to go to Mars.

Well Thought Out Mars Plan

This book was great! Honestly I have to go buy the paper copy now so that I can really see this plan laid out. While I'm sure his plan isn't perfect, it is a very reasonable and concise plan from an amazing astronaut and great mind!
