You can climb its mountains, and descend into its craters.

"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!"--BOOK JACKET.
