POW Right To The Moon
That's what Ralph Kramden used to tell his wife, Alice, all the time on the old Jackie Gleason Honeymooners Show, but these days, the cranky Kramden might well be threatening to send the old lady all the way clear to Mars. Check with Rod Pyle, he's the author of a neat new book titled "Destination Mars-New Explorations of the RED PLANET" from Prometheus Books. In the next 10 years, NASA, by itself & in collaboration with the European Space Agency, is planning a minimum of 4 separate missions to Mars. No doubt about it, exciting times are ahead for of us for Mars exploration & Pyle'sriveting read is more than exciting! Pyle is the author of the widely praised books "Destination Moon" & "Mission to the Moon", as well as a popular audiobook called "The Space Race". He's produced numerous documentaries for the History Channel & Discovery Communications, including the acclaimed "Modern Marvels: Apollo 11. Pyle doesn't let any moss "pile" under his feet either...he's also an adjunct professor at the University of La Verne & a lecturer with NASA/Johnson Space Center. "Destination Mars" brings to life an extraordinary part of human exploration-the preliminary reconnaissance of the planet of dreams over the last 50 years. How do you feel? Do believe there is, or has been life, up there on the "red planet"? I'd like to hear from you on my Puffman Blog. I encourage you to check out this book at: www.prometheusbooks.com. Zip, zap, boom pow(!), right to Mars Alice!!!
