A Passion for Mars

A Passion for MarsMy son Brian sent a copy of “A Passion for Mars” by Andrew Chaikin as a Father’s Day gift. It covers everything from the early Mariner missions to Spirit and Opportunity and beyond.

I really enjoy Chaikin’s writing, and especially liked “A Man on the Moon“, his earlier book on the Apollo program that served as the basis for the HBO series “From the Earth to the Moon” produced by Tom Hanks.
