George Hampton and his wife, Doris, lived in a small village, about an hour or more away from the NASA center. George had become famous for his many inventions that made him rich. He was an engineer of physics and chemistry. Their children, a boy and a girl, had moved out to live their own lives. He had fallen in love with his wife when he studied Ancient and Modern Greek. His wife, Doris, was of Greek descent and had wanted to encounter her ancestry and had assigned herself to study Greek.

George, with his genius and interest in Mars, helped NASA with their shuttle to be launched on a mission to Mars. What they didn’t know was George was planning to explore Mars himself. He equipped the space shuttle with his space suit; invented oxygen pills for breathing, food and water pills for consumption, and other pills for relieving himself and for long-time sleep. Fortunately for him, his Greek lessons and scientific knowledge were just what he needed to survive and communicate. But will George still find his way back to Earth—or will the beauty of the unexplored lure his brilliant mind to stay? Readers are about to find out as they accompany him when he discovers the creatures, beings, and things in this other planet.
