Twenty-three years after the disappearance of the Mars I space shuttle, NASA receives a mysterious transmission from Adrian Palmer, the commander of the mission. Adrian's brother, Kevin, wastes no time funding the Mars II rescue mission that will be commanded by Jake Palmer, Adrian's son.Jake and Dr. Steven "Skip" Hendricks, a NASA physicist and guru of religious history, travel through a wormhole that Skip believes was the reason the Mars I crew disappeared. They eventually crash-land on the planet Terrest and are thrust into a dangerous conflict. The native Terrestrians are at war against a superrace of humans called the Gnols, led by Koroan Chast.The Terrestrian's struggle is futile because the Gnols have superior intelligence, strength, and telekinetic and telepathic abilities. It's only when Koroan's own daughter, Celeste, rebels from her father's tyrannical rule and joins Adrian and Jake that the rebels stand a chance.In addition, Skip discovers a prophecy given by Jesus Christ in an ancient temple on Terrest detailing how the Gnols can possibly be defeated. But before the prophecy can come to pass, Adrian and Jake must first stop the Gnols from attacking Earth and enslaving the human race.Beyond Mars has been revised and is now entitled, Worlds Without End: The Mission.

The author of the most well-known and trusted relationship book of all time returns with an updated guide for today's generation. Two decades ago, Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus revolutionized the way we thought about love and partnership. John Gray's work has helped countless readers improve and even save their relationships. But as society evolves, relationships do, too. It's time to move beyond Mars and Venus, toward a new relationship model for modern couples. Today, men and women are no longer trapped by rigid societal roles. Now more than ever, we have the freedom to be our authentic selves. Women can access their masculine side, and men can embrace their feminine side. This new freedom is a good thing, but it also brings new challenges. Men and women still need the right tools and skills to help build stronger relation- ships. While previous generations sought "role mate" relationships, based on the more rigid gender roles of the time, today's couples need a new kind of relationship: a "soul mate" relationship. These more emotionally satisfying relationships require a deeper understanding of our partners' individual needs. In Beyond Mars and Venus, Gray teaches you how to strengthen your bond and grow in love together, so you and your loved one can meet each other's needs in the best way possible, bringing you lasting happiness and a fulfilling partnership.

Most of this book is fiction about the possible exploration of Mars in the future and travel to a near star. There are enough facts mentioned about progress in space travel to support the fact that more advanced space travel is possible. Having a colony of people on Mars could provide ideas to people living on earth to have a more healthy life. With growing world population and declining resources, because of the degrading environment we must think about life in the future. With Apollo 11, Neil Armstrong was able to set foot on the surface of the moon and give the first opportunity for astronauts to travel in space outside of the earths orbit. He wore a pressurized space suit to move about on the moons surface. Because the moon has no air or water, he had to return to earth in a short time. Additional Apollo trips were made to the moon including a moon buggy for short range transportation. Further trips to the moon were canceled because of the development of the International Space Station and the Shuttle. Rocket probes and robotic rovers which made the voyage to Mars landed to explore for water and minerals. Rockets have become double edged sword that can be used for Fourth of July celebrations and for space exploration, where they are put to good use. When used in warfare as ICBMs or in small military missiles, they can become leathal tools of war. This book is partially factual dealing with rocket events that have occurred. Some of the 8 Raymond Wisniewski mostly fiction Martian rocket events, in the book, still have to happen. Hermann Oberth, a German physicist was considered, The Father of Space Travel, who Werner von Braun admired. The United States allowed Werner von Braun to come to America after World War II to prevent German missile technology from falling into Russian hands and help the U.S. Army missile programs to get started and developed. Our space technology grew from von Brauns early work on Army missiles and with his work at the NASA George C. Marshall Space Flight Center. Rocket work at Redstone Arsenal paved the way for NASA to develop the Apollo moon rocket. After the Apollo missions to the moon, rocket propulsion helped lift the Space Shuttle and Space Station into earth orbit. The idea of going to Mars was considered the next space goal. The use of robotics in space, sending a men to Mars and finding life somewhere in space has stimulated space enthusiasts. Rocket propulsion has shown that payloads can be carried from small distances to intercontinental and outer space distances. Rockets have been and are now being used for peaceful purposes to put up satellites for television, communication systems and for GPS uses. Robotic vehicles as the Curiosity rover have landed on Mars and have explored for water and atmospheric conditions. To use of robotic vehicles and robots aiding astronauts in the future can paved the way for the eventual use of human astronauts for trips to Mars. There have been many science fiction stories about Mars. The stories have told about people living on Mars in advanced societies and how easy it was to take trips to Mars and fly around in rocket spaceships. We know now that Mars has a hostile environment with no air for humans and no Mars and Beyond 9 liquid water is to be found. This book shows the challenges of going to Mars and the stars and providing life support for the astronauts. This book is dedicated to my family and friends and to those who have helped me along the way to gain knowledge and move to a life in engineering and rocket technology.

As advanced in-space propulsion moves from science fiction to reality, the Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket, or VASIMR® engine, is a leading contender for making 'Mars in a month' a possibility. A paradigm shift in space transportation, this book is an in-depth and compelling story co-written by its inventor. It traces the riveting history of the development of the VASIMR® engine. This landmark technology is grounded in concepts of advanced plasma physics. It cross-pollinates ideas and disciplines to offer a new, practical, and sustainable solution for in-space transportation beyond low Earth orbit in the decades to come. Invented by the co-holder of the world’s spaceflight record, astronaut Franklin Chang Díaz, the VASIMR® engine is developed by Ad Astra Rocket Company in its Texas facilities with NASA as part of the NextSTEP VASIMR® partnership. With adequate funding, the first spaceflight of the VASIMR® engine is imminent. Plasma rockets feature exhaust velocities far above those achievable by conventional chemical rockets. The VASIMR® engine is the most advanced high-power plasma propulsion system operating in the world today and it may place long, fast interplanetary journeys withinour reach in the near future.

“Sarah Stewart Johnson interweaves her own coming-of-age story as a planetary scientist with a vivid history of the exploration of Mars in this celebration of human curiosity, passion, and perseverance.”—Alan Lightman, author of Einstein’s Dreams WINNER OF THE PHI BETA KAPPA AWARD FOR SCIENCE • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Times (UK) • Library Journal “Lovely . . . Johnson’s prose swirls with lyrical wonder, as varied and multihued as the apricot deserts, butterscotch skies and blue sunsets of Mars.”—Anthony Doerr, The New York Times Book Review Mars was once similar to Earth, but today there are no rivers, no lakes, no oceans. Coated in red dust, the terrain is bewilderingly empty. And yet multiple spacecraft are circling Mars, sweeping over Terra Sabaea, Syrtis Major, the dunes of Elysium, and Mare Sirenum—on the brink, perhaps, of a staggering find, one that would inspire humankind as much as any discovery in the history of modern science. In this beautifully observed, deeply personal book, Georgetown scientist Sarah Stewart Johnson tells the story of how she and other researchers have scoured Mars for signs of life, transforming the planet from a distant point of light into a world of its own. Johnson’s fascination with Mars began as a child in Kentucky, turning over rocks with her father and looking at planets in the night sky. She now conducts fieldwork in some of Earth’s most hostile environments, such as the Dry Valleys of Antarctica and the salt flats of Western Australia, developing methods for detecting life on other worlds. Here, with poetic precision, she interlaces her own personal journey—as a female scientist and a mother—with tales of other seekers, from Percival Lowell, who was convinced that a utopian society existed on Mars, to Audouin Dollfus, who tried to carry out astronomical observations from a stratospheric balloon. In the process, she shows how the story of Mars is also a story about Earth: This other world has been our mirror, our foil, a telltale reflection of our own anxieties and yearnings. Empathetic and evocative, The Sirens of Mars offers an unlikely natural history of a place where no human has ever set foot, while providing a vivid portrait of our quest to defy our isolation in the cosmos.

This classic on space travel was first published in 1953, when interplanetary space flight was considered science fiction by most of those who considered it at all. Here the German-born scientist Wernher von Braun detailed what he believed were the problems and possibilities inherent in a projected expedition to Mars. Today von Braun is recognized as the person most responsible for laying the groundwork for public acceptance of America's space program. When President Bush directed NASA in 1989 to prepare plans for an orbiting space station, lunar research bases, and human exploration of Mars, he was largely echoing what von Braun proposed in The Mars Project.
