For November, our editorial focus is Mars, Mars, Mars! We’ve got articles on the upcoming launches of NASA’s MAVEN orbiter, and India’s MOM orbiter, as well as a feature on the five spacecraft already exploring the Red Planet. The Mars Society informs us of its goal of putting human footprints on Mars within a decade. Plus we spotlight the ambitious plans of Inspiration Mars and Mars One to send humans to the Red Planet.
Our latest issue also has a tribute to Scott Carpenter, our Top 10 list of must-see celestial objects for amateur astronomers, a feature on a suborbital rocket launch carrying student experiments, a look back at the one-year anniversary of Endeavour’s cross-country journey from Florida through the streets of Los Angeles, and more.
