The astonishing discovery of possible fossils in a meteorite from Mars triggered renewed interest in the Red Planet. Over the next decade, robot spacecraft are being sent to Mars at every opportunity to pave the way for a human Mars landing early in the 21st Century. By 2015, humans could be standing on the surface of Mars.This is not science fiction. Mars: Pioneering the Planet goes beyond the first-footing to look at the future colonisation of the Red Planet. A Japanese construction company has already designed the first Mars city and there are also plans to put a roof over a Mars canyon to make it habitable. In the long-term future, planet engineers will begin to transform a dead, red world into a green world, bursting with life. By the process known as terraforming, water will be released from the polar caps of Mars to make rivers flow. Eventually, using plants as oxygen factories, Mars will become a sister world to Earth – a new outpost for human civilisation. Mars: Pioneering the Planet takes us there.
