Life on Mars
Scientific Archives is a new small publishing house. Our aim is to publish books of exceptional depth & permanence that have far reaching effects on society. We seek books that are solely technical in nature & written by authors who demonstrate extraordinary talent. After years of searching, we selected our first book in the Physical Sciences Series, LIFE ON MARS, by Dr. Robert Granger. LIFE ON MARS is based on a 9 year research investigation incorporating results of numerous scientists in government & university laboratories. The book has been reviewed in whole or in parts by eminent scientists, such as Carl Sagan of Cornell University. It has also been adopted as course text in some schools of higher education, yet it was written to be enjoyed by the lay-person. LIFE ON MARS has far-reaching implications. It traces the origin of the universe to the present cosmos, carefully constructing the requirements for life, however primitive, on any plant. One reviewer states, "I was particularly fascinated by the prose as well as the science! Great work!" Another reviewer cites,"...it will be the genesis for future students of planetary science." The book may be ordered as ISBN: 0-9659643 as either hard bound or soft bound, c/o Distribution Office, P.O. Box 600, Riva, MD 21140-0600.
