The Sands of Mars (Arthur C. Clarke Collection)

Arthur C. Clarke

In Clarke's first released full-length technological know-how fiction novel, popular technology fiction author Martin Gibson joins the spaceship Ares, the world's first interplanetary send for passenger shuttle, on its maiden voyage to Mars. His challenge: to report to the house planet in regards to the new Mars colony and the development it's been making.

First released in 1951, ahead of the fulfillment of house flight, Clarke addresses difficult actual and medical matters with aplomb-and the simplest clinical realizing of the days. integrated are the demanding situations of differing air pressures, loss of oxygen, nutrition provisions, critical climate styles, development on Mars, and techniques of neighborhood travel-both at the floor and to the planet's moons.
