This chapter focuses on the cultural geography of Mars science. It argues that the popular sensation over Martian landscapes and inhabitants constituted a meaningful engagement with imperial and expansionist imaginative geographies. This chapter analyzes the divergent American and British opinion on the inhabited-Mars hypothesis and explores the multiplicity of imaginative geographies that can be read in the phenomenon of turn-of-the-century Mars science.

Keywords:   Mars science, cultural geography, Martian landscapes, imaginative geographies, inhabited-Mars hypothesis
