Most other chapters have nothing to do with the title -- "A One Way Mission to Mars." Instead, they're just reprints of previously published scientific papers discussing the general physical and psychological effects of space travel on humans and other primates.
Worst of all, two chapters were written by one "Rhawn Joseph, PhD," who appears to have no valid academic credentials that I, or anyone else, can find (search his name to see for yourself), and whose name is associated only with apparently dubious theories. One has to be skeptical of a "scientist" who has no discernible credentials, and cannot even distinguish the difference between the words "affect" and "effect," which Mr. Joseph repeatedly uses incorrectly.
I was astonished by such incompetent copy editing, until I found that the book was published by The Journal of Cosmology, a controversial publication described as a "predatory scholarly open-access journal" by Scholarly Open Access, and denounced by biologist PZ Meyers as "Not a scientific journal at all."
I'd give this book zero stars, if possible, except for the first chapter co-written by a scientist I highly respect. I.m saddened that he allowed his name to be associated with this book.
I would recommend the book to all open minded persons who care about their children and grand children, and for the human species as well. Humanity should not place all its eggs in the same basket. Mars is much alike our Earth, and we could establish outposts, large basis and even colonize the red planet. It does make sense.
Moreover this project is quite affordable, and would necessarily foster Human progress. Not only technical progress, but Humanity as a whole as it would federate all nations to that scope.
