Mars in a Minute: How Do You Land on Mars?

In two of my four Timebenders books, Book 1: Battle Before Time and Book 4: Lost in Cydonia, our heroes—Max, Allie, Grady, and Toby—journey to Mars. Each time they get there in a wildly improbable but exciting way.

When real-life astronauts eventually go to Mars, they will have to solve problems of motion, gravity, air friction, heat, and so forth in order to land safely on the Red Planet. Click the image below to watch a 60-second video from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It explains three ways to land safely on the surface of Mars.
