Humans have known about Mars for more than 3500 years, but our total fascination with the planet truly began in the late nineteenth century. That fascination took a motorized great push forward when the Curiosity robotic rover first landed on the Red Planet in August 2012. Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Roger Wiens was one of the key developers of the laser instruments of space exploration vehicles. Thus, his Red Rover memoir serves as a rare insider's account of one of the most exciting scientific projects in recent years. A first-person account of taking us where no human has ever gone before.
