“Any time an Apollo-era astronaut steps forward with ideas for our future in space, it’s time to stop what whatever we’re doing and pay attention. Buzz Aldrin, one of the first moonwalkers, has no shortage of these ideas. And in Mission to Mars he treats us to how, when, and why we should travel there.” —Neil deGrasse Tyson

Legendary "space statesman" Buzz Aldrin speaks out as a vital advocate for the continuing quest to push the boundaries of the universe as we know it. As a pioneering astronaut who first set foot on the moon during mankind's first landing of Apollo 11--and as an aerospace engineer who designed an orbital rendezvous technique critical to future planetary landings--Aldrin has a vision, and in this book he plots out the path he proposes, taking humans to Mars by 2035.

Chapter 3: Your Space: Building the Business Case

Recensione:

"Colonizing space is essential for the long term survival of the human race, and Buzz Aldrin's book shows us how." --Stephen Hawking
"Buzz Aldrin has been as far from Earth as any human being, and now he's leading the charge to go much farther, to our next epic destination: Mars." --James Cameron
"Any time an Apollo-era astronaut steps forward with ideas for our future in space, it's time to stop what whatever we're doing and pay attention. Buzz Aldrin, one of the first moonwalkers, has no shortage of these ideas. And in "Mission to Mars" he treats us to how, when, and why we should travel there." --Neil deGrasse Tyson
"Buzz is one of the foremost forward thinkers of our time and this book will be essential reading for those who care about humanity's future in space." --Richard Branson
"Although the lunar landing is decades behind him, Dr. Aldrin is just plain passionate about humankind's exploration of space. An extraordinary pilot, scuba diver, moonwalker, and the first man to board a spacecraft on its way back to Earth, he advises us to keep going-- farther and deeper into space. Page by page, this book makes you want to slide into your space suit and light your engines." --Bill Nye, The Science Guy(R)
"A masterful array of strategies for exploration by a true space expert and patriot." --Michael Collins, astronaut and command module pilot, Apollo 11
""Mission to Mars" is pure Buzz: creative ideas flying off the pages, a big picture view of how to move forward, and a laser-like focus on why space exploration is key to humanity's future. Buzz Aldrin has been making major contributions to the U.S. space program for a half century, and his new book continues that tradition." --John M. Logsdon, founder of the Space Policy Institute and professor emeritus, The George Washington University
"I've traveled to the North Pole with Buzz, and if I were to travel to Mars I can't think of a better person to plan the tri
