Library JournalDeadly challenges await the first astronauts of the International Mars Mission in Ben Bova’s space opera adventure. Bova’s realistic account of space exploration details the mission’s inception, political hurdles, and eventual launch. On the red planet, the politics continues and threatens to overtake the mission after geologist Jamie Waterman forgets the first public message back to Earth and utters a Navaho expression instead. As this near-future adventure unfolds, environmental challenges and disease are as devastating to the crew as the discoveries they make.
