Slightly OT, but I just finished reading The Martian [1] by Andy Weir. I have always been fascinated by space and space travel, but I never really had a good grasp on the technical complexity of it all until I read that book. Now that I understand that, I have a whole new appreciation for how awesome the Rosetta/Philae and the New Horizons missions are, and exactly why it is so incredibly exciting what we have done in only the past 60 or so years of space travel.

For a fun (fictional) take about life on Mars, I'd recommend reading The Martian by Andy Weir ( amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/The-Martian-Novel-Andy-Weir-ebook/dp/B... ). The book was a wild read, and does a tremendous job showing the myriad difficulties humanity must overcome in order to colonize Mars.
