MARS - RACE TO THE RED PLANET

Get exclusive FREE access to the special Mars issue

National Geographic is boldly going where no-one has ever gone before: Mars.

Mars is never less than 34 million miles away - more than 140 times farther than the moon. To send astronauts would require a new kind of spacecraft that could house them comfortably for months, shield them from cosmic radiation, and carry enough supplies for the voyage home. In our special issue, we will show you how this can all be made possible (and is already being made possible)!

Our special issue, Mars - Race to the Red Planet, will take you further into space than ever before. To gain exclusive access to this special Mars issue, click here today to order 12 issues of National Geographic magazine. You will also gain FREE digital access to every upcoming issue and the entire digital archive (plus a FREE fleece jacket and a FREE world map)!
