Everyone’s talking about it, but you’re actually going to do it! That’s right, you’re moving to Mars, our most Earth-like neighbour in the solar system. And you’re going to be one of the first people there, actually living on the red planet and paving the way for future settlers. To live on Mars you’ve got to be tough and you’ve got to be prepared. If you’re going to survive, you’ll need answers to questions like: How fast can I get to Mars, and what will I need to pack? What sort of shelter will I be living in, and will it protect me from meteor showers? How do I find air and water, and can I grow food in Martian soil? What will happen to me if I go outside without my space suit on? Can I call Earth if I get homesick? And to help you avoid embarrassing accidents: How will I recognise Martian life so that I don’t step on it? Based on the latest Mars research, this is a must-have guide for all aspiring interplanetary travellers—don’t leave Earth without it!
