    1. What is it with journalists writing books They are used to writing short format articles with a catchy headline, interesting first paragraph and then perhaps the history of the subject and details revealed until the final summing up This doesn t translate into a book at all even though the author tries hard to extend the format to book length.The catchy headline is the title, How We ll Live on Mars The history, which is extensive and no than mildly interesting concentrates on Wernher von Braun [...]



    2. Many years ago, when the various Mars orbiters and landers were but drawings on paper, NASA made an important decision to follow the water The goal wasn t to focus on colonizing a planet it was intended to help in the hunt for alien life No water, no life It now seems a bit ironic that NASA s insistence on investigating whether or not there is life on Mars has in fact led us to a completely different understanding that there can be life on Mars human life.Stephen Petranek offers a crash course o [...]


    3. Ish Very light and glossy Plus annoyingly proselytizing Full of unsupported and unsupportable assumptions assertions, such as that with 50K people on Mars we could preserve the sum of human wisdom for eternity, or something like that Really Preserve all of what the ian tribes know Preserve which and what wisdoms, exactly That is, the lens was, well, a lens I m guessing he means the wisdom that brought you the iPhone and well, Mars Also the wisdom that messed up Earth and necessitated MarsAnd the [...]


    4. This caught my eye because, several weeks back, I d read The Martian by Andy Weir, which is about all the things that can go wrong with a Mars mission Wondering what a positive, factual view might look like, I picked up this TED talk by Stephen Petranek It s an interesting take on the past, present, and future of Mars exploration full of fascinating facts I still think it s a pretty hostile environment, where any inevitable mistake or accident will result in death but man does like to explore an [...]


    5. How We ll Live On Mars is a small book but an interesting read I got this book really it s a TED talk put into book form from the publishers booth at a local convention and just threw it into my bag along with all my other little freebies and thought nothing of it until I got home When I actually pulled it out and read the dust jacket I was instantly intrigued Petranek outlines all the questions and possible answers about how we ll live on Mars in this book Now I can t wait to move to the red pl [...]



    6. This book details the history of space travel from Wernher von Braun to SpaceX It goes over the current plans to send a peopled mission to Mars, including Mars One But there s little to no talk about actually living on Mars.Nothing is covered in depth Nothing original or new is discussed There s nothing in this book you can t learn from browsing This book has little to no value to those who are already interested in space travel It s also a little too boring to be good for inspiring people to be [...]


    7. If you re interested in the title, I think you ll find this tiny book really enjoyable It reads like non fiction, but clearly it s only a best guess at what the future holds Very discussion worthy The National Geographic TV series, Mars is only loosely based on this book and consuming one had little effect on my enjoyment of the other.I gave up on space in about 1999, figuring that without the government it wouldn t happen But Elon Musk s presentation this summer rekindled the spark of hope I al [...]


    8. I m a Mars skeptic.That said, I loved this book even though the author does what every Mars fan does he glossed over the whole radiation thing He doesn t do this egregiously, he does mention in a somewhat offhand way the problems radiation pose to so many of the steps required to live on Mars, but he does effectively kick the can with it.But Realistically, glossing over problems is part of how humans deceive themselves into thinking they can do incredible things and then, some fraction of them, [...]


    9. A very lightweight overview of the issues around putting humans on Mars The author skips over the daunting barriers to success with a wave of the hand The money to put a handful of people on Mars is staggering, the reasons for going are poorly defined The idea that a colony on Mars would be profitable is hard to believe But most annoying is the idea that we need Mars as a backup for the human race Forget taking care of the planet we already have We ll just go to Mars and spend Trillions of dolla [...]


    10. Concise and hopeful intro to humanity s Mars project Great for kids connects human s primal urge to explore with the science and tools that open our next phase of discovery.We will be a multi planet species in 15 30 years.I agree with other reviewers that this isn t a perfect book bold generalizations from selected facts bring this closer to science based sci fi Especially on psychology and economics his evidence is way too thin, and his biology genomics is pure speculation Oxygen consumption ca [...]


    11. A short book Also short on hard facts and in love with Elon Musk.But for all of that, also a book that got me excited about the race to Mars again The space race has been dormant far too long, so it s fun to think we could be living on Mars in my lifetime.

    13. First thing that comes to mind impossible But Petranek not only show how possible it is, he does it so that even a layperson can see it Really exciting read



    14. What are the things we need to live on Mars and how we ll get them, that is what this book is all about Its a good read, little bit of details would have made it better.


    15. My grandfather used to say that his life had gone from the first flight of the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk in 1903 to the landing of Neil Armstrong on the moon in 1969 As a child of the 1950 s, I was acutely aware when the Russians launched the first artificial satellite in 1957, and now, parallel to my grandfather, I expect to see human beings colonizing Mars in the remaining years of my life.How We ll Live on Mars, a companion book to a TED Talk, is a great book for an enthusiast like myself [...]


    16. I ve wanted to go to space basically my entire life One thing that s always interested me is how we ll live there what you can eat, how a different gravity will feel, and if a human could really handle never being outside in the open air again How We ll Live on Mars covers a lot of this and explains all sorts of neat little details about living on another planet without getting bogged down by minutiae I learned that I m going to have to eat bugs because it s the best kind of consistent protein y [...]


    17. I received this book for free through First Reads.It is difficult for me to review this book Normally I find positive things to say about a book than negatives Personally this book raised many ethical questions for me and I found my self shouting out excerpts of the book to my husband and then listing 5 or 6 reasons why I disagreed with the theories in the book.Even with the discussions the author laid out, I find this still to be science fiction than science fact Granted I am not a scientist [...]


    18. Great little book about space travel to Mars in the hopes of making the planet habitable In this book, which can be read in about an hour, the author briefly examines the following What has stood in our way of going to Mars Could we have been there already What are the implications of key decisions NASA made Did we use our budget wisely How have politics affected the space budget What can we do with such a limited budget What explorers have we already sent to the moon, space station, and Mars Wh [...]


    19. audio bookMany of the facts and hypothesis are well known and he gathers them into a stable measure But I do not have faith that he is telling all When I read or listen to someone who is explaining something to me I have an open mind that is until some of their statements or obvious omissions exhibit bias i.e when he is explaining culture migration, he talks about Magellan expedition He stated that Magellan was killed by hostile natives Books that I have read about the event leads me to believe [...]


    20. In this slim, little TED Talks book of 77 pages, we are given why we need to go to Mars and why we haven t made it there yet and what we will have to do once we get there, with a minor sidetrip to the asteroid belt That is a lot for so small a book, but it is sponsored by the folks at TED Talks, where you get a ton of information in 18 minutes or less I remember watching the moon landing in 1969 and dreaming I would visit my grandchildren on Mars That is a dream that won t come true Once the pol [...]


    21. Overall, Petranek s book is well written, concise, and easily consumable by a mass audience That said, if you have read than one or two recent books about Mars, there s not much here for you that s new And if you re really interested in the subject of humans living on Mars, Robert Zubrin s The Case for Mars is much satisfying But Petranek s book is one I can loan to people who are mildly curious about the subject.


    22. How We ll Live on Mars was a very well written and well researched book I discovered a lot of things about our space adventures of which I was not aware Werner Von Braun was a really intelligent man The pictures in the book are beautiful.I recommend this book to anyone with an adventurous spirit or who is interested in space travel colonization discovery.I received this book free from First Reads.


    23. A nice and short look at what it will take to get us to Mars by 2027 While there probably isn t any new information here for fans of this topic, this will provide a quick summary of the obstacles a Mars Mission Colony will face Wouldn t it be cool if we actually did make it to Mars by 2027

    25. Over the Christmas break, I watched the National Geographic Channel s excellent drama cum documentary series Mars A couple of episodes in, as one of the documentary sequences interviewed Stephen L Petranek, I had a moment of realisation hang on, I have this book, and it s one I haven t read yet To the Bookcave, Batman Petranek s How We ll Live On Mars, like all the TED Books series is short and sharp It s fewer than 100 pages, designed to be read in a single sitting or maybe two, if you get inte [...]
