A journey to Mars is seriously being considered in the near future. Fascinating facts about what it is like for an astronaut to live and work in space today are described and compared to the dangers and survival needs for people going to and living on Mars. The features of Mars with new discoveries and common myths about Mars and space travel are also explained. Included will be a competition quiz with a prize based on the information presented and students will have access to NASA's disk of lunar samples collected by Apollo astronauts on Missions 15, 16, and 17.
