Mars-Ready Now: Spaceflight, Fitness, Personal Finance, and Adventure
Mars-Ready Now: Spaceflight, Fitness, Personal Finance, and Adventure
James Coombs
Mars Ready Now is a manifesto. The new space race is real. People are hyped. But the terrible truth is that few people will ever know what it is like to travel beyond Earth. Most of those who wonder, will never find out. We do not want to miss out on humanity's greatest adventure because we lacked what is needed — whether that is money, physical fitness, bravery, or the child-like sense that anything is possible. When the call goes out (whenever that may be), we do not want to be unprepared. Join us on the journey. The future is sooner than you think. — James Coombs and Soren Childs
