There was a time when humanity looked in the mirror and saw something precious, worth protecting and fighting for--indeed, worth liberating.

According to this idea, human beings are a cancer upon the Earth, a horde of vermin whose aspirations and appetites are endangering the natural order. This is the core of antihumanism

Mars on Earth : the adventures of space pioneers in the high Arctic by Robert Zubrin ( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here is the incredible true story of a group of determined space voyagers who wouldn't wait for the space program to catch up with them. From 1999 to 2002, the stalwarts of the Mars Society began the virtual exploration of Mars through a series of unique missions. Complete with habitat modules, space suits, and next-generation exploration equipment, they lived in the most isolated spots on earth, where they replicated and studied the real-life challenges of exploring the Red Planet. Encounters with polar bears, tensions between crew members, bouts with near-disaster, and, ultimately, victory in creating an earthbound "space program" would inspire people around the world who followed the mission on the Discovery Channel and in feature articles. Leading the mission was the man known as the "Christopher Columbus of Mars," internationally renowned astronautical engineer Robert Zubrin. In Mars on Earth , Zubrin tells a tale of risk and adventure in the frozen wastes of the Arctic and Antarctic, and in the parched deserts of the American southwest and the Australian outback. Strikingly illustrated with dramatic on-site photographs and possessed of remarkable accounts of technological know-how and achievement, Mars on Earth captures the wild-eyed idealism and hardheaded practicality of the current generation of space enthusiasts

Mars direct space exploration, the red planet, and the human future by Robert Zubrin ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The human race is at a crossroads. In the coming years, 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. If we ever hope to live in the future that is the former scenario, our first stepping stone must be a manned mission to Mars. 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 to humanity--the human race's future as a species that takes the necessary baby steps away from the cradle that is planet Earth or, ultimately, perishes here
