9780060546380: Destination: Mars (Destination (HarperCollins Publishers Paperback))

Seymour Simon has written more than 150 award-winning science books about animals, anatomy, astronomy, earth science, and vehicles!

Named after the Roman god of war, Mars has fascinated people for thousands of years. Did you know that . . .

  • A Martian year is 687 Earth days, almost twice as long as a year on Earth.
  • Mars’s biggest valley, Valles Marineris, is four times as deep as the Grand Canyon!
  • Scientists think that Mars, now rocky and barren, once had an ocean, rivers, and a thicker atmosphere.
  • The first robot ever to explore the surface of Mars is only about the size of a child’s toy wagon.

From Booklist:

This revised edition of Simon's book Mars (1987) includes new pictures from the Mars Orbiter Camera, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Pathfinder lander, all launched since the publication of the earlier volume. The text also reflects NASA missions that gathered information about Mars in the late 1990s. In the same handsome format as Simon's other books on the planets, this volume offers a timely update of knowledge and speculation about the red planet. Carolyn Phelan
