Reading and highlighting several sources of information that would prove critical to my understanding surrounding my chosen topic. They included:
- 'A Case For Mars' by Dr Robert Zubrin
- 'Fundamental of Astrodynamics' by Roger R. Bate, Donald D. Mueller and Jerry E. White
- 'Mankind Beyond Earth' by Claude A. Piantadosi
I also watched the 'Mars' miniseries filmed and produced by National Geographic
Useful information will be recorded using highlighters and post-it page markers, and will be colour coded in correspondence to the section of my dissertation.
