"The exploration and settlement of Mars is one of the most daring and audacious human endeavours of our time" - Dr. Robert Zubrin
We are happy to welcome everyone to the first inaugural event of the Mars Society London!
The International Mars Society is the world’s largest and most influential space advocacy organization dedicated to the human exploration and settlement of the planet Mars. Established by Dr. Robert Zubrin and others in 1998. The group works to educate the public, the media and government on the benefits of exploring Mars and creating a permanent human presence on the Red Planet.
This event will mark the opening and first gathering of the London Chapterof the Mars society! The aim of this chapter is to build a community of Mars and Space Pioneers and Entrepreneurs in London and the UK.
Building on the spirit of the early space pioneers we want to inspire and enable a new generation of scientists, technologists, designers, engineers, entrepreneurs, investors and others - to direct their talents and skills towards this exciting and important cause of our generation. And of course, to inspire and re-inspire existing and new space and Mars enthusiasts!
What is the next stage in human evolution? Why Mars? Can we get humans to land on Mars by 2030? What role will AI play in space exploration and Mars settlement? How can we make use of the space technologies to improve living conditions on Earth? What are the opportunities for start-ups and SMEs in innovating and pushing the possibilities in this area? Are we going to be more or less experimental with our technologies and designs of Martian habitats, given both the increased constraints and risks there?
