Book Detail
After Pathfinder landed on the surface of Mars National Geographic decided to create the definitive volume on our fascination with and exploration of the Red Planet. I spent several days with Pathfinder Project Scientist Matt Golombek at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory doing research in preparation for this book. JPL's photographic specialist extraordinaire Jurrie van der Woude opened his archives to me so this volume would be as comprehensive as possible. I was the Illustrations Editor of this tremendous book which featured imagery as diverse as 15th Century drawings of Copernicus, posters from the film War of the Worlds, and the most recently available 3-D photographs of Mars.
