Mars clouds

William Lee Kohler

December 11, 2013

In 1986 I bought a green hardcover book at Johnson Space Center of Mariner(I think) photos of Mars. When I saw clouds against the background of the planet I was blown away! It was as if I was in a spacecraft coming in over another world and I wanted to BE THERE. I could see that this is a world where we can actually live and work. This is a stepping stone on our way to the Cosmos.
