“A staggering book . . . the best novel on the colonization of Mars that has ever been written.”—Arthur C. Clarke

For centuries, the barren, desolate landscape of the red planet has beckoned to humankind. Now a group of one hundred colonists begins a mission whose ultimate goal is to transform Mars into a more Earthlike planet. They will place giant satellite mirrors in Martian orbit to reflect light onto its surface. Black dust sprinkled on the polar caps will capture warmth and melt the ice. And massive tunnels drilled into the mantle will create stupendous vents of hot gases. But despite these ambitious goals, there are some who would fight to the death to prevent Mars from ever being changed.

EvaUnit4 ,

Great book but....

All of chapter 6 is missing and there is a large chunk near the end that is missing as well other than than that its a great book and an intriguing story with the kind of destruction only humanity can bring to "nothing"

Magdaroo ,

Painfully dull

Started out well but sputtered out to a tedious slog. After skipping many pages, realized I had missed nothing and finally abandoned it at 75%.
