Aliens: Join The Scientists Searching Space for Extraterrestrial Life attempts to answer the question “Do Aliens Exist?” is a friendly and colorful book about the solar system. The book reads like a journey through the solar system, briefly discussing the origin of plants and animals and then methodically going through each of the planets in the solar system and debunking conspiracy theories.
Also included in Aliens: Join The Scientists Searching Space for Extraterrestrial Life is a summary of the fascinating Viking Program at NASA which wanted to put spacecraft on other planets. Two brief sections introduce the rovers and landing crafts that have been on Mars and other planets.
