Living On Mars

CNN has a story on a guy writing a book about surviving on the planet Mars. He apparently has a lot of scientific and technical support to make it as about as realistic as could be expected. There's a possibility they may turn the the story into a movie. Might be fun. 

Reminds me of a neat book I read many years ago. I believe it was Mission to Mars, by James Oberg, although the picture of the book provided by Amazon isn't the same as the cover of the one I read. If it is the same book, and you're fascinated by the idea of not just traveling to Mars, but colonizing it, you might really enjoy it. 

He goes through the problems of getting there and how they might terraform the planet to make it more human friendly. He makes it sound doable.
