    schema:reviewBody ""Welcome to the next New World! Take a tour with us of the high-lights. See the landscapes that will greet the first humans to set foot on the Red Planet Like a tourist in a strange and foreign land, experience what this smaller sibling of Earth has to offer its visitors." "You may never visit the Red Planet in person. But you can experience firsthand in these pages its beauty and uniqueness. You can learn about Mars's past, its land, and its soil. You can climb its mountains, and descend into its craters. Like the twin rovers that have been roaming around on the surface, relaying back to us pictures of what they see, you can explore Mars for yourself. And you don't even have to put on a space suit!" "Complementing veteran science writer Gregory Vogt's engrossing text are some of the best images ever taken of Mars recent and past. Some of the images show what we have learned about Mars's interior. Others show us how Mars looks in different "seasons." All inform us of how Mars is similar to, or different from, other planets in the Solar System." "So get ready to begin the exciting visual tour offered in these pages. You really can leave Earth - without leaving your chair!"--Jacket." ;
