It’s official. You are a member of Generation Mars. That means you might be among the first humans to live on the surface of the red planet. Amazing news, but you might want to take a coat; it has the largest dust storms in the solar system, not to mention the largest volcano. Evidence from volcanic lava flows is so recent that scientists think it may still be active. Ok, so a coat and perhaps an umbrella. Better make it a strong one.
Join us on a marvellous mission to the red planet, with our Life on Mars issue. Its jam packed with all the usual makes, quizzes and competitions. Plus Harvey introduces us to the bizarre lives of extremophiles, Philip and Phoebe, our philosophical twins, discuss the question of a social contract for Mars, and Aquila peers into the past at how a humble radio play caused panic on the streets of North America.
