As a comprehensive assessment for this query is undertaken, it is realized that the basic question ‘Why Mars?’ seeks various responses from technological, economic and geopolitical to strategic perspectives. The book is essentially targeted to understand India’s desire to reach Mars.

Recenzii

From the reviews:
“‘Mission Mars’ is a short but good introduction to the mission’s architecture, goals and background. … This brief book is in a way also an overview of why go to Mars at all and also why India decided on a Mars mission after their successful Chandrayaan mission. … Lele also describes the conditions on Mars and some of the other future mission to Mars that will be launch either in this launch window or the next one. … I found it a really enjoyable book.” (Kadri Tinn, AstroMadness.com, October, 2013)
