‘This book, as well as presenting new ideas on the planning of expeditions on Mars, can also be regarded as a field guide for future Martian expeditioners. It will provide some of the foundation knowledge for planning expeditions to the Martian volcanoes, poles, deserts and caves..’ (from the Foreward).
This volume brings together perspectives of Earth and Mars explorers to consider the surface of Mars from the explorer’s viewpoint. A starting assumption is made that there is already a base on Mars that can support expeditions. Then, the authors describe how they would plan expeditions across Mars, including environmental, psychological and scientific factors that would influence these expeditions. This book, as well as presenting new ideas on the planning of expeditions on Mars, can also be regarded as a field guide for future Martian expeditioners. It provides some of the foundation knowledge for planning expeditions to the Martian volcanoes, poles, deserts and caves. The papers in this book are based on a symposium of the British Interplanetary Society held Feb. 24, 2003, London, England, plus numerous invited papers.
The volume is divided into eight sections: Section 1: weather for Martian expeditions; Section 2: science on Martian expedition; Section 3: expedition challenges on Mars; Section 4: planning tools for expeditions; Section 5: expedition mobility; Section 6: expedition environmental impact; Section 7: expedition human factors; Section 8: expedition medicine. Numerical, author and key word index included.
