The Museum offers an evening reception, lecture and book signing with award-winning journalist Leonard David, as he talks about his book, “Mars: Our Future on the Red Planet.” Leonard David has been reporting on space activities for nearly 50 years. He is the 2010 winner of the prestigious National Space Club Press Award. His new book considers the imminent settlement of humans on Mars in this companion book to the National Geographic Channel six-part Mars series produced by Ron Howard.
The National Geographic Channel “Mars,” is a six-part series documenting and dramatizing the next 25 years as humans land on and learn to live on Mars. Leonard’s companion book to the series explores the science behind the mission and the challenges awaiting those brave individuals. Filled with vivid photographs taken on Earth, in space, and on Mars; arresting maps; and commentary from the world’s top planetary scientists, this fascinating book will takes us millions of miles away—and decades into the future—to our next home in the solar system.
