From Olympus Mons and Mariner Valley, to the chaos terrain and Phobos and Deimos, the Red Planet is ready to be visited, cataloged, and explored. Readers will discover what the longest-ever road trip would be like, what to expect on the planet's surface, and what potential dangers face them once they get there.
