Destination: Mars

Categories: Destination: Mars

 

Welcome to Destination: Mars!

This project started as a hobby but then took on a life of its own.  Across the 14 modules that you see below are thousands of links to videos, articles, graphics, video, and audio. Parcelled by topic, you should find this material very interesting if you’re a fan of Mars. As time goes by, I’ll be adding more recent information within each module, keeping updates regarding Mars updated and pertinent.

The content will be most interesting to those in fifth grade or higher, including college students and interested adults.

A note: When you open a module, just click the Take Off button.  When you do that you’ll, well, Take Off.  Also, if you click on this icon in any of the pages…

…a Topic Menu will appear on the left; when you click the icon once again, it will disappear.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi Michael! I accepted your invitation to “Take Off” and wandered as far as Mars 4: Mars’ Ancient History. Later on when I have more time I will do some more exploring through your fascinating tour.
    I’ve been a fan of Bradbury and Sagan and Burroughs’ concept of Mars ever since I read the first in the series of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “John carter of Mars” books one summer when I was a teenager. John Carter was a mortally wounded Civil War soldier who had crawled into a cave for shelter. At night as he lay dying he gazed up at the red planet as he had done all of his life. As he died, his soul passed into another soldier on Mars and he began his new life on “Barsoom”. I was totally hooked on all of the science fiction I could get my hands on, and Mars certainly did have a special fascination! From http://www.edgarriceburroughs.com/?page_id=18, “Even though science claims there is no life on Mars his stories remain vibrant and timeless tales, because Burroughs knew the appeal and power of the Martian myth. Writers like Ray Bradbury and scientists like Carl Sagan have acknowledged that Burroughs’ Martian tales were the wellspring from which their own careers arose.”
    Disney’s 2012 film failed to do justice to Burroughs’ creative narrative of life on the red planet (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0401729). Obviously I haven’t seen your entire impressive compilation of Mars info, so maybe your already included Burroughs work. I loved your site and will be coming back again and again!
