REaD PLANET: Recent Mars Reading List

compiled by K. S. Edgett

Excitement begins to build as the round of launches to Mars approaches. More and more magazine articles are appearing all the time. Recent publications include the May 1996, issue of the kids' magazine Odyssey, which is all about Mars and the upcoming missions. A couple of relevant articles appeared in the journal, Science-- one about how Mars Pathfinder's landing site was picked, the other about NASA Administrator Dan Goldin and the future of the space agency. The National Space Society is promising that their magazine, Ad Astra, for July-August 1996, will feature a variety of Mars articles-- including one on Mars education resources. Their address is 922 Pennsylvania Ave., S.E., Washington, DC 20003. Check your local bookstores and libraries for the following:
