Hi! My name is Pascal Lee. I am a planetary scientist at the Mars Institute and the SETI Institute. Welcome to my personal website. I post some of my drawings and paintings here. You will also find information about my first book, MISSION: MARS published by Scholastic, and about PASSAGE TO MARS, the award-winning documentary film on our epic NORTHWEST PASSAGE DRIVE EXPEDITION across the Arctic.

For comments, go to Guest Book. To contact me, go to Contact. Enjoy your visit!


A Mars Astronaut returns to base by ATV (All-Terrain Vehicle) at the end of a long day of gritty fieldwork. Name tag left blank. Who will he or she be?...

When I visit schools, I always bring copies of MISSION: MARS to give away, but I now also bring prints of MARS ASTRONAUT to write the names of school kids on the name tag, to encourage them to believe in themselves, to love STEM fields, and to follow their dreams. Plus they tell me it's so cool and fun!

To help us bring more books and prints to our schools & classrooms, Contact me.
