marsThe cutting edge of science in today’s world is seen in the tremendous breakthroughs in biology, pharmaceuticals, cloning, armaments, and more. It is clearly evident, as well, in space and planetary exploration. Scott begins her study of Mars with H. G. Well’s 1898 classic science fiction story, The War of the Worlds. More than 100 years later, our explorations on Mars are equal to any fictional tale. Today’s scientists search for signs of Martian microbial life and water. They believe that Mars was once habitable, had once had water, and had once been able to support life. They cannot, however, explain what happened to the water and whether the same thing could happen on Earth.
