page is devoted to the past, present, and future of humanity's exploration
of the red planet Mars. In this page you will take a voyage of the
imagination to that world as seen in the pages of science fiction, in the
classical space art before the dawn of the space age, and in the writings
of early scientific pioneer's such as Precival Lowell (famous for
his work on the legendary cannals of Mars). Since this year marks
the centennial of H.G. Wells' publication of the "War of the
Worlds" I will be including numerous links connected to that famous classic
of science fiction. Mars still excites the popular imagination, and even
today in the latter part of the twentieth century we see new popular myths
and folklore emerging in connection to the famous face of Cydonia.
Was this the site of an ancient and now vanished extraterrestrial civilization?
Decide for yourself and explore the links below. This past summer many
of us heard the exciting news that evidence for past microbial life
may have been found in ancient metorites that may have originated from
Mars. This year also marks the dawn of a new era of Martian exploration,
the robotic pathfinder missions that will be paving the way for the human
exploration and eventual settlement of that ancient and alluring world.
Mars beckons let us answer its call and open a new world for human exploration
