The first human activity on Mars will be a momentous occasion, even more significant than Neil Armstrong's 'giant leap'.

*  What will happen when the first human crew sets foot on the red sands of Mars?

*  What can they achieve that an automated mission can not?

*  How will the first Marwalk take place?

All these questions and more are answered in MARSWALK ONE: First steps on a new planet.  Using analysis from previous human and automated space programmes, the authors provide a credible scenario of the first human landing on the Red Planet.  This fascinating and unique book will help everyone interested in the space program to understand the clear benefits of sending a human crew to the surface of Mars.  Sustained long-term public and political support for the program is a challenge to be faced and overcome.
