A National Geographic exclusive, this dual-sided map is an amalgamation of almost 1,000 images taken from the Mars Global Surveyor satellite. It provides the sharpest rendering yet of Mars and its terrain.

Over 18 insets illustrate the past and present geography and landscape of Mars including evidence of: daily surface changes from wind, ice, and possibly water; past catastrophic floods; and massive volcanic activity with lava flows larger than the area of Russia! A timeline reveals our fascination with Mars, and our efforts to describe it with scientific exploration and Hollywood fantasy.

This version is laminated—featuring a "write and wipe" surface and durable plastic covering.

    Comments about Destination Mars Map, Laminated:

    Not only a map, but a wealth of information! The map itself is wonderful and detailed. It is so fantastic to live in a time we can buy a detailed map with labelled features of another planet! The front has interesting information on the polar ice-caps (with smaller maps in the corners to show them), shows Mars' position in the solar system, has a sort of glossary for the latin names and a chart compating various features of Mars to the Earth (Diameter, Mass etc.) in addition to the main map and introductory paragraph. The back has an astonishing variety of facts for the space and all is very interesting to read and look at. The only problem is only being able to hang one side out at a time! But for the price, maybe we'll get another. The lamination is nice. Durable but easier to ship than a frame. Very reasonable shipping costs. Bought this as a gift for my partner, as we have our whole basement decorated with maps, but he hasn't hung it up yet as he has been too busy reading one side and perusing the other.

      Comments about Destination Mars Map, Laminated:

      I plan to use this in my classroom as a part of a year-long Mars themed project. It shows great detail and the information of the back will help my students visualize topography and evidence of water found there.
