"NASa's Mariner and Viking space probes produced tens of thousands of photographs of Mars, showing it to be barren, crater-ruin, wind-swept world. Many scientists initially declared it to have always been lifeless. But two NASA scientists became haunted by a number of NASA camera frames that appeared to show a face staring out into space. They devised a computer image-enhancement technique which showed that the phase had distinctive human features and expression, including eye pupils and a pharaoh -type headdress. This is hardly the product of natural erosion. It is the Sphinx Face of Mars." – from three front end page. But, on further investigation and enhancement of photographs structures that appeared to be like the Egyptian pyramids were revealed along with apparently architecturally built structures – was there a ancient civilisation on our nearest neighbour? This book goes into the probabilities of this phenomenon. Rubbing of the book edges and panels with age toning of the text block edges and pages. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 115, [3] pages,.

When a South African moon mission fails to make a landing on moon, it also fails to make a re-entry into Earth's atmosphere. Catapulted back, the scientists on board are surely to die – except they unexpectedly land on Mars. "What the travellers find, however is dramatically at odds with what was previously known about this planet. What's small, there is life on Mars, and it's not happy with what it's heard about Earth. The crew of South Africa One return from Mars with a dire ultimatum, only to find the governments of earth do not take lightly to space-Borland amounts. But in the wall of the planets, does earth had any chance of surviving? Doesn't even deserve to?" -- from rear panel blurb.

The Heavens on Fire: The Great Leonid Meteor Storms
Littmann, Mark
ISBN: 0521624053
Cambridge University Press 1998  1998 
  Large 8vo hardcover 349pp index, b/w illus. very good, missing title page. / very good d/w. Meteor succeeded meteor in such rapid succession that it was impossible to count them; at times the sky seemed full of them, and the earth was illuminated as with a morning light. Eye-witness accounts such as this, and every spectacular detail of the Leonids, the greatest meteor showers of all, can be found in the acclaimed The Heavens on Fire. In this volume, author Mark Littmann vividly tells the history of meteors, and especially the Leonids, whose terrifying beauty established meteor science. He traces the history and mythology of meteors, profiles the fascinating figures whose discoveries advanced the field, and explores how meteors have changed the course of life on Earth. Crisp illustrations capture the excitement of past meteor showers and help elucidate important concepts.

Patrick Moore on Mars
Moore, Patrick
ISBN: 1841880043
Sterling Publishing April 2000  2000 
  8vo softcover 224pp very good. Illustrated with colour photos. Night falls over the equator and Phoebus rises from the west. It takes only 4 1/4 hours for this nearest moon to cross the sky--more than enough time for it to wax from new to full. This is the enduring charm of Mars: the more you learn about it, the stranger it seems. Moore's sober, commonsense tale of discovery cannot help but be as much about the garish Mars of the imagination as it is about the physical planet--and the changes wrought upon that imaginary twin have been truly cataclysmic.

Magnificent Desolation - The Long Journey Home From the Moon
Aldrin, Buzz with Ken Abraham
ISBN: 1408804166
Bloomsbury 2010  2010 
  8vo softcover 352pp very good. The flight of Apollo 11 made Aldrin one of the most famous persons on our planet, yet few people know the rest of this true American hero’s story. In Magnificent Desolation, Aldrin not only gives us a harrowing first-person account of the lunar landing that came within seconds of failure and the ultimate insider’s view of life as one of the superstars of America’s space program, he also opens up with remarkable candor about his more personal trials–and eventual triumphs–back on Earth. From the glory of being part of the mission that fulfilled President Kennedy’s challenge to reach the moon before the decade was out, Aldrin returned home to an Air Force career stripped of purpose or direction, other than as a public relations tool that NASA put to relentless use in a seemingly nonstop world tour. The twin demons of depression and alcoholism emerged–the first of which Aldrin confronted early and publicly, and the second of which he met with denial until it nearly killed him. He burned through two marriages, his Air Force career came to an inglorious end, and he found himself selling cars for a living when he wasn’t drunkenly wrecking them. Redemption came when he finally embraced sobriety, gained the love of a woman, Lois, who would become the great joy of his life, and dedicated himself to being a tireless advocate for the future of space exploration–not only as a scientific endeavor but also as a thriving commercial enterprise.

The Moon and the Western Imagination
Montgomery, Scott L.
ISBN: 0816519897
Arizona 1999  1999 
  Trade paperback. 265pp. Very Good. The Moon is at once a face with a thousand expressions and the archetypal planet. Throughout history it has been gazed upon by people of every culture in every walk of life. From early perceptions of the Moon as an abode of divine forces, humanity has in turn accepted the mathematized Moon of the Greeks, the naturalistic lunar portrait of Jan van Eyck, and the telescopic view of Galileo. Scott Montgomery has produced a richly detailed analysis of how the Moon has been visualized in Western culture through the ages, revealing the faces it has presented to philosophers, writers, artists, and scientists for nearly three millennia. To do this, he has drawn on a wide array of sources that illustrate mankind's changing concept of the nature and significance of heavenly bodies from classical antiquity to the dawn of modern science. Montgomery especially focuses on the seventeenth century, when the Moon was first mapped and its features named. From literary explorations such as Francis Godwin's Man in the Moone and Cyrano de Bergerac's L'autre monde to Michael Van Langren's textual lunar map and Giambattista Riccioli's Almagestum novum, he shows how Renaissance man was moved by the lunar orb, how he battled to claim its surface, and how he in turn elevated the Moon to a new level in human awareness. The effect on human imagination has been cumulative: our idea of the Moon, and therefore the planets, is multilayered and complex, having been enriched by associations played out in increasingly complicated harmonies over time. We have shifted the way we think about the lunar face from a "perfect" body to an earthlike one, with corresponding changes in verbal and visual expression. Ultimately, Montgomery suggests, our concept of the Moon has never wandered too far from the world we know best-the Earth itself. And when we finally establish lunar bases and take up some form of residence on the Moon's surface, we will not be conquering a New World, fresh and mostly unknown, but a much older one, ripe with history.
