Dr. Robert Zubrin one of the scientific leaders on Mars colonization and the author of The Case for Mars "Gets It" and does a great job describing the need to colonize Mars and how to get there.Some interesting illustrations and pictures of people interested in the Mars mission strategy. I strongly believe Robert's plan "Mars direct" to get 4 people to Mars and back is the most economical and safest way to go. Also it allows 1 1/2 years of on ground Mars crew exploration.
Hey the heavy hitters, Buzz Aldrin,Carl Sagan and Arther C Clarke had great stuff to say about Dr. Zubrin leading the field and liked his book. See back cover dust jacket.
This book is not super technical and you don't need a degree in astrophysics to enjoy it. Anyone interested in expansion of the human race and Mars colonization will enjoy this book. As a amateur astronomer for 40 years and someone wanting to see manned exploration of Mars, I give The Case for Mars my highest rating. After reading The Case For Mars (5 stars) read Mars On Earth also by Robert Zubrin.
Zubrin deserves credit for sometimes being alone in fighting for humanity's future in space.
