TRR: Episode 6, “The Red Planet”



Water has possibly been discovered on Mars, but this is not a new question. The question of water on the planet was at the center of the debate surrounding Percival Lowell’s Martian canals. In this episode of The Reader Reads, we explore the theories of water on Mars in Lowell’s time, as well as other Mars-related works of fiction.
