Written in 1949 by science fiction master Robert Heinlein, Red Planet is a novel for teenage boys, concerning events during the early years of a Mars colony.

Students are also warned "Test Duration is not less than 48 hours , not more than 10 days" and Rod tells us he can graduate college without ...
