Grand Central Publishing’s “The Big Picture” series will debut today, with a cover story titled “The Story of the First Woman on Mars.”
This is the first book to be written by author and photographer Lauren Legrand and her husband, Peter Legrand, and features an exclusive interview with Mars Exploration Rovers (MER) 2.0 astronaut Nicole Johnston, who flew the first Martian mission, on Feb. 12, 2018.
The book was published in April and is available for pre-order.
In a new interview, Legrand explains why she was inspired to write the book and what her life has been like since her Mars adventure.
The book is full of stories from Legrand’s time on Mars, from the day she met Johnston and their day-to-day work as MER 2.
