I'm about 95% done reading the book. Its a slow reading book as I have had the book 1 3/4 years. I only read a submitted paper to the Mars Society when I have spare extra time, like when its raining etc.
The papers were all OK. None lower than 3 stars and some 5 stars. I wanted this book to get up to speed on some papers submitted by members of the Mars Society.
I liked the paper of M.A.R.S, 2 The Mars Society Advanced Research Station by Hannes S. Giebeli, and Sven Knuth ...5 stars. Also A Modular Construction System For A Martian Manned Base by Georgi Gaviraghi was good...5 stars. Page 139 A Study of Mars Global Surveyor...Images of Probable Water Seepages by Efrain Palermo and Harry Moore was super great...5 stars. Of course page 179 The Case for Terraforming Mars by Robert Zubrin was super... also 5 stars.
Also the papers showing the early education of our children to develop an interest in Mars and the need for high education with lots of math and science was spot on! I even found the papers written by high school students competing for the Hakluyt award interesting.
Combined the papers were 3 1/2 stars, again none lower than a 3 star. The DVD bonus DVD was super!
It took me twice to download the required Apple Quickview plug in and the installation/run three times. It took me an extra 10 minutes to get the first video going showing the beginning construction of the Mars Society Hab on Devon Island in isolated northern Canada to have as near to Mars conditions as can be found on Earth.Read more ›
