            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.

            Discover the wonders of the Universe with this complete introduction to observing and understanding the night sky. This practical guide explains and demystifies stargazing, teaching you to recognize different kinds of objects and showing you how they move through the sky over the... course of the night and the year. It shows you how to understand and enjoy the cosmos, building your practical astronomy skills from the basics to more advanced techniques. Beginning with an explanation of the Universe itself - how big is it, what shape is it, how old is it, and will it end? - it then takes you on a tour around the night sky, building up your knowledge in simple stages. Practical advice begins with naked-eye observations, then illustrated step-by-step instructions show you how to set up and use binoculars and telescopes, and how to take your own pictures of the night sky. It also lets you take a closer look at the different objects you can view in the night sky, telling you how to train your eye to recognize basic patterns of stars (constellations) and how to tell planets apart from other celestial bodies, showing you how to observe them in an innovative step-by-step way. An atlas of the night sky is also included, with charts that can be used in both the northern and southern hemispheres throughout the year. Accessible, inspirational, and authoritative, Stargazing for Beginners will enthuse and inform anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of the night sky.
