Human Missions to Mars: Enabling Technologies for Exploring the Red Planet (2nd edition) By Rapp Donald
2015 | 582 Pages | ISBN: 3319222481 | PDF | 15 MB


This book presents a highly readable yet realistic view of the possibilities for human missions to Mars. It provides for the first time a 'level-headed' assessment of plans for human exploration of Mars to counteract the tendency of space agencies to take an over-optimistic approach to such interplanetary missions. The author presents a detailed analysis of why, in his opinion, the current NASA approach will fail to send humans to Mars before 2080.
