Thinking about moving to mars? Well, why not? Mars, after all, is the planet that holds the greatest promise for human colonization. But why speculate about the possibilities when you can get the real scientific scoop from someone who’s been happily living and working there for years? Straight from the not-so-distant future, this intrepid pioneer’s tips for physical, financial, and social survival on the Red Planet cover: • How to get to Mars (Cycling spacecraft offer cheap rides, but the smell is not for everyone.) • Choosing a spacesuit (The old-fashioned but reliable pneumatic Neil Armstrong style versus the sleek new—but anatomically unforgiving—elastic “skinsuit.”) • Selecting a habitat (Just like on Earth: location, location, location.) • Finding a job that pays well and doesn’t kill you (This is not a metaphor on Mars.) • How to meet the opposite sex (Master more than forty Mars-centric pickup lines.) With more than twenty original illustrations by Michael Carroll, Robert Murray, and other renowned space artists, How to Live on Mars seamlessly blends humor and real science, and is a practical and exhilarating guide to life on our first extraterrestrial home. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Atomic Space Age has been and continues to be an engine for future wealth creation. Humanity stands on the verge of becoming an interplanetary species. We know we are made of star-stuff precisely because many of the isotopes in our bodies originated in the death throes of dying suns. With the discovery of nuclear fission in 1938, mankind was for the first time able to glimpse both our distant past and our possible future. As with the discovery of fire and agriculture thousands of years ago, wind power hundreds of years ago, and steam power and electricity in the nineteenth century, we must now learn to tame this powerful new force locked within the heart of the atom. Buckminster Fuller once observed that wealth is nothing more than energy compounded by ingenuity. Since (mass-)energy can never decrease, and ingenuity will only increase, there is no limit to the quantity of wealth that our species can and will create using nuclear space propulsion.

“Bob Zubrin really, nearly alone, changed our thinking on this issue.” —Carl Sagan, The Denver Post If you ever daydream about space travel and human space flight—or hope to one day rove the Red Planet alongside Curiosity—then MARS DIRECT will teach you how we can get there The human race is at a crossroads. In the coming decades, we will make decisions regarding our human spaceflight program that will lead to one of two familiar futures: the open universe of Star Trek, where we allow ourselves the opportunity to spread our wings and attempt to flourish as an interplanetary species—or the closed, dystopian, and ultimately self-destructive world of Soylent Green, constantly at war with one another over humanity’s “limited” resources. If we plan to survive ourselves and one day travel to the stars, the human race’s next stepping-stone must be a manned mission to and the eventual colonization of Mars. In this four-part e-special, Mars Society founder Dr. Robert Zubrin details the challenges of a manned Earth-to-Mars mission. Challenges which, according to Zubrin, we are technologically more prepared to overcome than the obstacles of the missions to the moon of the sixties and seventies. Dr. Zubrin’s relatively simple plan, called Mars Direct, could feasibly have humans on the surface of Mars within a decade. Zubrin also discusses the current predicament of NASA, the promise of privatized space flight from companies like SpaceX, and the larger implication behind the absolute necessity to open the final frontier and transform from a planetary society into an interplanetary society. Our future as a species requires us to take baby steps away from the cradle that is planet Earth or, ultimately, perish here.

Der Zukunftsforscher und preisgekrönte Wissenschaftsjournalist Stephen Petranek erklärt in seinem TED-Book ›Unser Leben auf dem Mars‹, warum es schon in zwanzig Jahren unumgänglich sein wird, dass Menschen auf dem Mars leben. Er zeigt packend und ganz konkret, wie wir mittels bereits bestehender Technik dorthin kommen können und wie wir schon bald Wasser und Sauerstoff aus unterirdischen Eisvorkommen gewinnen und Gewächshäuser bauen werden, um so die Bedingungen für menschliches Leben auf dem nächsten Verwandten unseres Heimatplaneten zu schaffen. Es wird Leben auf dem Mars geben! Das ist nicht Science-Fiction, die Technologie dafür existiert schon heute.

Auf dem Weg zum roten Planeten Die erste bemannte Mission zum Mars verläuft ganz anders, als sich das viele vorstellen: Da der NASA die nötigen Mittel fehlen, wird ein Preisgeld ausgesetzt für denjenigen, der als erster Bodenproben vom Mars zur Erde bringt. Der amerikanische Unternehmer John Axelrod wirbt Astronauten an und baut ein Schiff, ein chinesisch-europäisches Konsortium macht ihm dabei Konkurrenz. Beide Schiffe erreichen den Mars, beide nehmen Proben - doch dann wird Axelrods Rückkehrfahrzeug so schwer beschädigt, dass die Astronauten nicht mehr zur Erde zurück können. Ein Ersatzfahrzeug von der Erde könnte die Männer retten, aber Axelrod ist pleite und kann die Mission nicht finanzieren ...
