            For centuries, we have longed to find signs of life on Mars, a planet with a singular hold on the human imagination. Yet it is in many ways an unlikely place to pin our hopes of finding connection in the universe. Mars is freezing, arid and seemingly empty. Still, the latest find...ings in space exploration reveal that, in the deep past, it was indeed the planet closest to our own. In The Sirens of Mars, Sarah Stewart Johnson traces the history of our explorations of this enigmatic planet from the dawn of the Space Age to the awe-inspiring discoveries of today's landers, orbiters and rovers. She tells the stories of the scientists, from Carl Sagan to her mentor Maria Zuber, who chose to study Mars in the hopes of finding something greater than themselves. Through their work and her own, we come to see Mars as a place of possibility - home to the largest mountains in the solar system, valleys and riverbeds, traces of water - and the promise of life. At a time when Mars exploration is reaching new heights, Sarah Stewart Johnson reveals how the story of Mars is also the story of Earth, and the quest to explore it a deeply human attempt to discover - if we're lucky - that we're not alone.

            An icon of the last fifty years, Stephen Hawking seems to encapsulate genius- not since Albert Einstein has a scientific figure held such a position in popular consciousness. In this enthralling memoir, writer and physicist Leonard Mlodinow tells the story of his friend and their... friendship, offering an intimate account of this giant of science. The two met in 2003, when Stephen asked Leonard if he would consider writing a book with him, the follow up to the bestselling A Brief History of Time. As they spent years working on a second book, The Grand Design, they forged a deep connection and Leonard gained a much better understanding of Stephen's daily life and struggles - as well as his compassion and good humour. Together they obsessed over the perfect sentence, debated the physics, and occasionally punted on Cambridge's waterways with champagne and strawberries. In time, Leonard was able to finished Stephen's jokes, chide his sporadic mischief, and learn how the hardships of his illness helped forge that unique perspective on the universe. By weaving together their shared story with a clear-sighted portrayal of Hawking's scientific achievements, Mlodinow creates a beautiful portrait of Stephen Hawking as a brilliant, impish and generous man whose life was not only exceptional but also genuinely inspiring.
