Leaving Earth: Why one-way to Mars makes sense

Leaving Earth: Why one-way to Mars makes sense by Andrew Rader sets out the logic of a one-way trip to Mars. In particular, it explains why a return trip would be way more than twice the cost and difficulty of a single trip. It also assesses many of the other issues surrounding such a trip.

Some of his ideas I have adopted in One way, some I have adapted and some I have ignored. Mine is, after all, a work of fiction.

Is there anywhere this can be purchased in hard copy in the UK?

Sorry - no plans for this at present. But if you sign up for the mailing list you’ll be among the first to know if this changes
