Even a journey of 35 million miles must begin by one step, a step that will begin the Mars Odyssey. Mars has influenced numerous cultures effecting legends, religious beliefs and scientific development. Andrew Lound traces the history of Mars exploration taking us on a journey of great human tragedy, of scientific discovery and of intense debate that has changed forever our perception of the universe. More of a performance than a lecture, it is illustrated with quality images, music and numerous props! So prepare to be taken on an odyssey that will end one day with a human foot making an imprint in the Martian soil.
