Today on Far Future Horizons we are proud to present the first episode of the National Geographic Channel’s new miniseries Mars.
In 2033, the first human mission to Mars enters the planet's atmosphere, but the Daedalus crew faces a life-threatening emergency when the ship's landing system goes offline. The crew's commander risks his life to fix the problem as Mission Control monitors back on Earth.
Interwoven within the drama, in present day, SpaceX is attempting to land the world's first reusable rocket to pioneer the critical technology that will help humans reach and eventually settle the planet Mars.
In a unique blend of scripted drama and feature-film caliber visual effects, intercut with documentary sequences, the series presents what the greatest minds in space exploration are doing to make traveling to Mars a reality, and shows us the world they seek.
Leonard David's companion book to the series Mars: Our Future on the Red Planet can be purchased from Amazon Books.
