The Nature of Mars
By: Dr. Patch Lieveert
About the Book
As humans get ever closer to reaching Mars, imagine for a moment that one has already been there; even more, imagine that Mars is where we came from in the first place. This is what Dr. Patch Lieveert suspects, and he decides to explore this possibility. Through his unique talents, Lieveert manages to visit Mars—takes him about forty-five minutes—and collect DNA samples. Now, he simply has to prove his claims to the rest of the scientific community in The Nature of Mars.
