No one has ever been to Mars. It is between 35 million and 250 million miles away, depending on the calendar. But Space scientists are developing a rocket to take us.

How do we know when to go? Can we land without crashing and burning? How will we survive when we get there?

Mars has a thin and unbreathable atmosphere, intense radiation, and sandstorms the size of North America. There is no fuel, and the only water is locked in the frozen icecaps and particular rocks.

Mind Mappers Can We Live on Mars? unravels the complicated science and logistics of this incredible challenge. Structured in a unique way using the visual-thinking technique—mind mapping—complex ideas are broken down into a clear flow of visual information. The mind map connects the information, making it easy to grasp. Even the youngest wannabe astronaut can learn how humans may be able to reach and live on the Red Planet in their own lifetime.

BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATIONS: Combines the beauty of a picture book with science-based facts and information.
