In Mars: The Red Planet, we investigate the nature and composition of
the planet in our solar system that shares the most similarities with
Earth. Despite otherworldly features - such as the largest volcano in
the Solar System - the red planet had much in common with our own one.
Rumours of life on Mars may be substantiated as NASA orbiters and
rovers discover new evidence of frozen water just beneath the rusty
soil. Did alien life exist there? As Earth reels with the effects of
global warming, Mars becomes the most likely candidate for eventual
human habitation. Cutting-edge computer graphics are used to show what
life would be like on Mars, and to imagine what kind of life forms
might evolve in alien atmospheres.
