The Hunt for Life on Mars , Goldsmith, Donald
10 The Hunt for Life on Mars  Goldsmith, Donald
0525943366 / 9780525943365 Very Good.  
Hardcover. Stated 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1997 Dutton. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight. Only light wear. 267 pages; Index; Glossary; black-and-white photos. Language: English. 'It is hard to imagine anything more cosmically significant than the discovery of evidence of life on Mars. When news of a forthcoming Science article about a remarkable four-pound meteorite named ALH 84001, the oldest rock known to humankind, was leaked to the mainstream press in August 1996, the scientists involved were forced to forgo professional protocol and come forward with their earth-shaking data. In the ensuing excitement, many of the finer details of their research were glossed over. Accomplished science popularizer and astronomer Goldsmith preserves the story of ALH 84001, from its discovery on the ice of Antarctica in 1984 by Roberta Score to the realization, 10 years later, that not only was this weird rock Martian but it was also inlaid with carbonate globules and what might be traces of tiny single-cell organisms. Goldsmith's lively interviews with key players personalize this riveting tale of discovery and ongoing debate about the origin of life on Earth, its possible connection to life on Mars, and the future of Mars exploration. An engaging, comprehensive, and timely book on one of our age's most profound quests.'--Donna Seaman, Booklist.
