Theres never been a better time to be an armchair astronaut. Forget this planet. The economy is terrible, global warming is inevitable, and there are at least eight major wars happening right now. Thats why Kessler left home and moved to Mars.MoreTheres never been a better time to be an armchair astronaut. Forget this planet. The economy is terrible, global warming is inevitable, and there are at least eight major wars happening right now. Thats why Kessler left home and moved to Mars.

Well, not all the way to Mars. The closest spot on Earth you can get without a rocket. In the summer of 2008, he lived his space dream, spending the months in mission control of The Phoenix expedition with 130 top scientists and engineers as they explored Mars. This story is a human drama about modern-day Magellans battling NASA politics, temperamental robots, and the bizarre world of daily life in mission control.

Kessler was the first outsider ever granted unfettered access to such an event, giving us a true Mission-to-Mars exclusive.The Phoenix Mars mission was the first man-made probe ever sent to the Martian arctic. They wanted to find out how climate change can turn a warm, wet planet (read: Earth) into a cold, barren desert (read: Mars). That might seem like a trivial pursuit, but its probably the most impressive feat we humans can achieve, and it took the culmination of nearly the entirety of human knowledge to do it.Along the way, Phoenix discovered a giant frozen ocean trapped beneath the north pole of Mars, exotic food for aliens and liquid water.

This is not science fiction. Its fact. Not bad for a summer holiday.
