How many of us have been fascinated with the planet Mars since we learned about the universe? The book Mars: A photographic exploration is breathtaking. When I look at these photos, I am space struck by how many textures exist on this planet. In 2005, NASA sent an MRO probe to orbit Mars at an average distance of 300 km, capturing a landscape that NASA estimates was formed over s 3 billion year period. Actually, while looking at the Martian landscape, all sorts of abstract music also comes to my mind, and I could see so many of these photos as album covers or hanging on our walls as pieces of art! I might just have to buy this book, because these are photos I need to see in person. You can pick up Mars: A photographic exploration Here!
