Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Experience the thrill of being the first human to set foot on Mars without so much as stepping into a space shuttle as computer animation and extensive NASA research combine to send the viewer to a planet many believe was once not so different from our own. From comprehensive analysis of the dangers that may be experienced by the first Mars explorers to such prime directives as searching for signs of life, surveying the surface, and conducting key scientific experiments, this virtual trip to the Red Planet is truly the next best thing to being there. Additional interviews with NASA's head administrator of Mars Exploration and the president of the Space Frontier Foundation offer an extensive look at the future of space exploration.
