Did you ever consider a trip to Mars? The planet Mars. It does become cheaper year after year, though. If you do, we recommend this brief guide that covers everything from the launch, over a smooth cruise, to the soft landing and, of course, growing potatoes (in-situ resource utilization) in just 150 pages. All that you need to know for your trip—all inclusive.

This is the real deal, however, a serious guide: the physics of interplanetary travel, rendezvous maneuvers, transfer orbits, and why astronauts float in space are explained by a college professor, in plain English.

All the nitty gritty details are included, too. How to make O2 and fuel on Mars? Life-support systems, communication, and navigation—how does that work? Why should we go there in the first place, and who will likely be first?

Buckle up and join the ride.
