Editorial Reviews

Review

'The comparison of the first drawings done by Huygens in the XVIIth century with the imagery of the XXIst century is extraordinary ... very well documented ...' l'Astronomie

'Taylor ... proves to be an engaging and amusing guide, discussing the scientific outcomes of missions such as the Mars Exploration Rovers with as equally a light touch as he describes the political wrangling which brought the mission into being. The Scientific Exploration of Mars is something between a reference book and popular science writing; detailed enough to tell you all the necessary facts, yet entertaining and insightful enough to make you want to read from cover to cover. For those interested in finding out how we came to know what we do about Mars, this is a fine place to start.' Euan Monaghan, Planetary and Space Sciences Research Institute, The Open University

'This is a brilliant book. Professor Fred Taylor of Oxford University ... has chronicled our exploration of the red planet in erudite and accessible fashion. ... This is a terrific book for any students of the red planet ...' Astronomy Now

"[This book] is something between a reference book and popular science writing: detailed enough to tell you all the necessary facts, yet entertaining and insightful enough to make you want to read from cover to cover. For those interested in finding out how we came to know what we do about Mars, this is a fine place to start."

"...this volume is beautifully produced and engagingly written. It may be read with profit by all interested in the ongoing study of Mars." Bill Leatherbarrow, J. Br. Astron. Assoc.

"Written in a clear, engaging style, this wonderful book will be of high interest to scientifically literate readers seeking a comprehensive history and outlook about manned explorations of Mars. Essential." CHOICE

"The text is very clear; there are extensive references. The diagrams are good and the illustrations adequate.. An excellent book..Serious students of Mars will find it particularly valuable, and it will no doubt run to many editions.
" - Sky at Night
