PASSPORT TO KNOWLEDGE - To MARS with MER
"To MARS with MER"
"To MARS with MER," for the first time, tells the gritty and authentic inside story of some of America's unsung heroes and heroines, doing one of the things this nation does best - exploring the solar system, path-finding the human future, shedding light on our place in the Cosmos. For without the people, as Wayne Lee says, "all the metal turns to junk."
