Episode Summary

EDIT
Blues for a Red Planet
AIRED:
This episode examines both the planet Mars and humanity's perception of the planet, beginning with the science-fiction author H.G. Wells and Percival Lowell's sighting of the "canals." Carl Sagan explores how we progressed from fantasy to fact through science. What is the future for Mars? Could it be transformed into an Earth-like planet? The viewers see actual photos from the Mariner and Viking probes. Dr. Sagan uses special effects to travel to Mars, as seen by authors of science fiction novels. He then contrasts this with pictures of the surface of Mars taken by the Viking spacecraft.moreless
