New Books of Interest
Smithsonian Mars

The Smithsonian Book of Mars
Joseph M. Boyce - 2003
Amazon: US UK

" From 1985 to 2000 Joseph Boyce provided scientific leadership to NASA as its Mars exploration program scientist. He has lived much of the history of the planet's exploration, and his findings have helped to determine what we know about Mars today." - Amazon synopsis

The Life & Death of Planet Earth

The Life and Death of
Planet Earth:
How the New Science of Astrobiology Charts the Ultimate Fate of Our World

Peter D. Ward & Donald Brownlee - 2003
Amazon: US  UK

"Authors of the best-selling Rare Earth, Peter Ward and Donald Brownlee, have released a new book on the fascinating science of astrobiology, the study of a planet's life cycle. The Life and Death of Planet Earth discusses the latest findings about the histories of planets and applies this knowledge to the earth. Including what scientists know about the earth's geological and biological past present and future, Brownlee and Ward describe a colorful and often shocking series of changes our earth will undergo in the coming millennia until it's inevitable end." - publisher's description

Mapping Mars

Mapping Mars
Oliver Morton - 2002
Amazon: US  UK

"As Oliver Morton shows in his superb new book, Mapping Mars, Mars has clouds, winds, and shorelines. It has river valleys, mountains, volcanoes, and even glaciers. Even were it lifeless, it could support life, albeit of an almost unimaginably marginal kind."

"What Mars lacks is places. There are no 'theres' there, nor will there be--until our feet make an impact on its soil. Oliver Morton has a sense of place and a hunger for Mars, and a thrilling manner of communicating both. His account of our nearest neighbor's history, geology, and human potential is exhaustive. Morton touches on just about everything, from soil composition to survival techniques; from Martians to maps (maps, above all: they are his abiding subject, metaphor, and organizing principle). His artistry is to hide his daunting range of interests under a passionate and gripping human narrative: this book is about what Mars has meant, means, and may one day mean for us. And he has a wide-ranging definition of who 'we' are..." - Amazon review
