Robert Zubrin discusses his new book, How to Live on Mars, with Public Radio

New Hampshire Public Radio recently interviewed scientist and author Robert Zubrin about his new book How to Live on Mars: a Trusty Guidebook to Surviving and Thriving on the Red Planet (December 2008). A blend of science, science fiction, and humor, Zubrin's guide seeks to address many of the important challenges humans will face when they relocate to Mars.

Dr. Robert Zubrin is an aerospace engineer, president of The Mars Society, and of one of the most vocal proponents for the human colonization of Mars. Two recent reports that echo his call to arms:

Beyond the Moon: a New Roadmap for Human Space Exploration in the 21st Century, by The Planetary Society (November 2008)

The Future of Human Spaceflight, a white paper by the Space, Policy, and Society Research Group, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (December 2008)
