Presenter Carl Sagan Category ScienceSpace Year 1980 Watch time 00:59:40

As mankind plans its first ever manned mission to Mars, this particular episode of Cosmos is more relevant now than ever before. Dr Sagan takes us through the history of Mars our beautiful red neighbour and its history of fictional tales that have surrounded it since the 19th century; stemming from H.G. Wells Sci-Fi Classic War of the worlds. We then go onto look at one of the pioneering minds of a generation, Robert Goodard who invented and tested the original concept for a liquid fueld rocket, without whoms work, we probably wouldn’t have a space program.
