In a single, informative reference, Mars discusses the fundamental facts concerning this mysterious planet, including its mass, size, and atmosphere, as well as the various missions that helped planetary scientists document the geological history of Mars. This volume also describes Mars' seasons with their surface effects on the planet and how they have changed over time, as well as what is known and inferred about the composition and structure of the interior of Mars, including theories of planetary information, of an unusually iron-rich mantle, and of the planet's paradoxically strong early magnetic field, which has now completely ended. Perfect for those interested in understanding the science and history behind the exploration of Mars, this volume opens the door to a whole new world of discovery.
