Jamie Waterman has discovered the fact that an intelligent race had lived on Mars 65 million years ago. Now the exploration of Mars is under threat of extinction, as the ultraconservative New Morality movement gains control of the U.S. government and cuts off all funding for the Mars program.
From the Publisher:

Jamie Waterman discovered the cliff dwelling on Mars, and the fact that an intelligent race lived on the red planet sixty-five million years ago, only to be driven into extinction by the crash of a giant meteor. Now the exploration of Mars is itself under threat of extinction, as the ultraconservative New Morality movement gains control of the U.S. government and cuts off all funding for the Mars program.||Meanwhile, Carter Carleton, an anthropologist who was driven from his university post by unproven charges of rape, has started to dig up the remains of a Martian village. Science and politics clash on two worlds as Jamie desperately tries to save the Mars program and uncover who the vanished Martians were.

Discovering proof that intelligent life had existed on Mars millions of years earlier, scientists Jamie Waterman and Carter Carleton struggle to protect Mars funding in the face of ultra-conservatives who fear the discovery will compromise their religious beliefs. Reprint.

Ben Bova began writing fiction in his teens, though his first novel did not appear until 1959. He graduated from Temple University in 1954 with a B.S., then worked as a newspaper editor until 1956, when he became a technical writer. He then worked in a variety of science-oriented jobs before being appointed to succeed the legendary John W. Campbell as editor of the influential science fiction magazine "Analog" in 1971. In 1978, Bova moved on to "Omni", where he was editorial director. As an author, Bova's Kinsman series is one of the most well known in all of science fiction. As an editor, in addition to winning the Hugo Award for six of the eight years he edited "Analog", his editorial ideas significantly shaped the way that science fiction came to be perceived. As well as his science fiction achievements, he is a former president of the National Space Society, a frequent science and technical expert on the "CBS Morning News", a popular lecturer, and a scientific consultant for the film industry.
