Leonard David is a legendary space journalist of our time, and he demonstrates this in, "Mars: Our Future on the Red Planet". Our nation has been blessed with the resources to have sent a bunch of robots to Mars since the 1960s. Because of these missions, we have learned a tremendous amount about Mars. David masterly takes the information produced by the robots and translates it for the common man into how we can accomplish the task of sending humans to live on Mars. He lays out how and where we should land, and openly discusses the risks and challenges of doing so. The photographs of Mars are stunning. And David documents the stories of many modern day leaders in our understanding of Mars. The book is remarkably up-to-date, including Mars discoveries from 2016. If you've ever wanted to know, from a scientific basis, of how to live and work on Mars, this is the book for you. Hats off to Leonard David.
