Description
In the summer of 2008, Discovery Channel contributor Andrew Kessler was granted unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to preparations for the Phoenix Mars mission, which sent a probe to the Martian arctic. Kessler looks at the astonishing technical achievements of this underfunded team of scientists, and profiles some of them, including an expert on robot arms and a man who resents being called "the World's Greatest Martian Photographer." Illustrated with 16 pages of color photographs, this memoir chronicles the frustrations and triumphs of the team that eventually discovered water on the red planet.
