Mars: The Viking Discoveries.
French, Bevan M.
This booklet describes the results of NASA's Viking spacecraft on Mars. It is intended to be useful for the teacher of basic courses in earth science, space science, astronomy, physics, or geology, but is also of interest to the well-informed layman. Topics include why we should study Mars, how the Viking spacecraft works, the winds of Mars, the chemistry of Mars, experiments in relativity, and the future of the Viking spacecraft. An appendix includes suggestions for further reading, classroom experiments and activities, and suggested films. (BB)
