MISSION: MARS is a non-fiction children's book I wrote on the Human Exploration of Mars. The book is aimed at kids aged 9 to 12, but some aged 4 to over 90 seem to be enjoying it too. It takes young readers on a Basic Training Mission to become Future Mars Explorers. It was a lot of fun and a good team effort, especially with my editor Mona Chiang, to create! The book is endorsed by the Mars Institute and the SETI Institute, my two home institutions. MISSION: MARS is published by Scholastic and was released in September 2013, but as of 2020, everything in it is still current or will soon happen. To find out more, visit:
