Have you ever dreamed of walking on Mars? Or maybe even living there? Ever since Mars was discovered, people have wondered if there could be life on this mysterious red planet. For years, astronomers at NASA and other space agencies have been exploring Mars. They've sent rovers to study the planet and search for water and signs of life. One day, NASA plans to send astronauts there, too. But first, they need to learn many things about Mars and how people might travel that deep into space. Read this book to learn all about the exploration of Mars. You could be the first person to go there!

Overcoming failure
The search for water
The search for life
Journey to Mars.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Space is a perennially high-interest topic, and although there are plenty of series on the subject, these titles in the Space Discovery Guides series stand out from the crowd with plenty of up-to-date content, engaging layouts, and a lively tone. Mars Missions lays out the technical challenges of traveling to Mars, discoveries made by rovers in the past couple of decades, and projects currently in the works to eventually send humans to the red planet. Each title is packed with photos and diagrams, all of which are clearly labeled, but the real star is the fascinating, current information, which fills every page. Space-obsessed kids will find plenty to wonder over in these slim but meaty volumes.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2017 Booklist"
