Can astronauts reach Mars by 2035? Absolutely, says Buzz Aldrin, one of the first men to walk on the moon. Celebrated astronaut, brilliant engineer, bestselling author, Aldrin believes it is not only possibly but vital to America’s future to keep pushing the space frontier outward for the sake of exploration, science, development, commerce, and security. What we need, he argues, is a commitment by the U.S. President as rousing as JFK’s promise to reach the moon by the end of the 1960s—an audacious, inspiring goal-and a unified vision for space exploration. In Mission to Mars, Aldrin plots that trajectory, stressing that American-led space exploration is essential to the economic and technological vitality of the nation and the world. Do you dare to dream big? Then join Aldrin in his thought provoking and inspiring Mission to Mars.

A manned mission to Mars is faced with challenges and topics that may not be obvious but of great importance and challenging for such a mission. This is the first book that collects contributions from scholars in various fields, from astronomy and medicine, to theology and philosophy, addressing such topics. The discussion goes beyond medical and technological challenges of such a deep-space mission. The focus is on human nature, human emotions and biases in such a new environment. The primary audience for this book are all researchers interested in the human factor in a space mission including philosophers, social scientists, astronomers, and others. This volume will also be of high interest for a much wider audience like the non-academic world, or for students.

Mars has always signaled to the mankind when it would travel high in the night sky. The ancient people have assumed that this rust-red planet was the god of war and therefore, they christened it with the name “Mars”. The early explorers were armed with newly forms of invented telescopes discovered that Mars exhibited seasonal color changes and were subjected to dust storms that used to encircle the globe and might even have had several channels that could have crisscrossed the surface. The recent explorers make use of the advanced technology and the robotic surrogates to extend their reach out to the planet Mars. With the use of the advanced technology, they have discovered that Mars is much more interesting and the complex planet in the Solar System. As per the claims of the present explorers that pieces of Mars have even arrived on the Earth as meteorites and these particles are pointing out to the possible existence of life on Mars. This has resulted in the growth of the active interests of the explorers to gain impetus about the living conditions on Mars.

How feasible is a manned Mars flight? How soon will it be possible? How long will it take? What kind of spacecraft will make the journey? What kind of data will be collected? What are the advantages of a manned flight over an unmanned? Mission to Mars discusses these questions and more in this serious, documented treatment of the not-too-distant manned expedition to Mars. The shuttle has proved successful and an enthusiastic boost to American interest in space. But while many laypeople wonder “what’s next,” scientists are planning what they feel is the next logical step. Drawing on the vast amount of data sent back by Viking orbiters and probes, and existing developments in propulsion and space technology, space experts all over have been speculating, analyzing, and exchanging ideas relative to the long-awaited mission to Mars. Other factors, critical to an intelligent discussion of such an undertaking are included here: spaceship design and assembly, propulsion systems, navigation principles, life support systems, selecting a landing site, scientific activities on Mars, cost factors, political and social issues.
