It's the age-old question: is there life on Mars? This is the story of the Mars Exploration Rover mission, the most ambitious attempt yet to explore the surface of another planet and the first great voyage of exploration of the 21rst century. If so much as a fossilised microbe is found, it will change fundamentally the way we view our place in the universe. Squyres is the charismatic scientist behind the Mars mission. Considered the leading authority on all things Mars, he uses his firsthand knowledge to bring this historic mission in perspective. Features a 16-page photo insert.… (més)

The Lead PI of the Mars Rovers Spirit and Opportunity tells his story.
Excellent book on the woolly world of government funded big science. ( )

Author has a cool job as science lead on the rover. Sounds friggin awesome! Loved hearing the stories and challenges. However, the writing was a bit uneven. Often he would allude to an issue or problem, but then skip right over it and not give any clarity on how it was solved or what happened. But really fun reading about such an historic science mission. ( )

An excellent book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading about all of the work that went into building the rovers and sending them to Mars. I also thought that the author did a good job of finding the right balance of science/tech talk and layman's terms. The book is educational but also approachable to those of us with average intelligence. I found myself rooting for the two rovers as they went to work on our neighboring planet. ( )

This is sort of about roving mars, but more about getting the rover TO mars- I can't say I was really all tha interested in NASA's politics when I picked this up but Squyres managed to hook me- was odd, I KNEW the rovers got there, but he somehow managed to make me doubt it. Enjoyable read anyhow. ( )

Steve Squyres was the Principal Investigator for the Spirit and Opportunity missions and this is his memoir of how the idea came into being, how they were designed and built, launched and mission on Mars for the first 150 days. It's fairly lively as his excitement bleeds over but lets face it, the byzantine bureaucracy of NASA can be boring no matter how well written. But you learn what goes on and shows how close the mission came to being canceled many times. The engineering challenges were sometimes interesting. The science aspect was boring for me since the discovery of water (or evidence of) is now well known and no great surprise. Overall this is a detailed but interesting look into the people, processes, engineering, technology and science behind probably the most famous NASA mission of the 2000's, as told from the perspective of the lead investigator whose idea it was from the start.
