Opening with an examination of the biophysical perspective of life on Mars, this book continues with a discussion of the presence of iron there. The search for signals of life in meteorites, in Antarctica and on Mars is covered. The detection of life in the form of clay leads to a review of the hypothesis of the existence of clay-life on Mars and on the transformation of Mars. The contamination of Mars and the technology of returning samples is also discussed. The text culminates with a look at the planning of Mars-related space activities since the Phobos 88 mission.
