By Stephen E. Strom,Bradford A. Smith

Nearly 5 billion years in the past, Earth and Mars have been born jointly as planetary siblings orbiting a tender, rising solar. but this present day, one planet is water wealthy and existence bearing, whereas the opposite is apparently chilly, dry, and forbidding.

Earth and Mars is a fusion of artwork and technology, a mix of pictures and essays celebrating the profitable production of our life-sustaining planet and the sweetness and secret of Mars. via photographs of terrestrial landscapes and images chosen from fresh NASA and eu house organisation missions to Mars, Earth and Mars unearths the profound attractiveness due to the motion of volcanism, wind, and water. The accompanying textual content offers a context for appreciating the position of those elemental forces in shaping the surfaces of every planet, in addition to the divergent evolutionary paths that resulted in an Earth that's teeming with lifestyles, and Mars that's doubtless lifeless.

Earth and Mars conjures up mirrored image at the terribly smooth stability of forces that has ended in our success: to be alive and sentient on a bountiful blue world.
