An absolutely unmissable book, for those who are really passionate about Mars!

Antoniadi was the first astronomer to explain the illusory nature of the alleged “channels” observed by the Italian astronomer G. V. Schiaparelli, through his observations made with a telescope four times more powerful than that used by Schiaparelli. The maps of Mars drawn by Antoniadi remained the most accurate and detailed until the beginning of space exploration of the red planet! 😉
