We are glad to announce the establishment of Mars Society South Asia (MSSA), the official chapter of The Mars Society for countries in southern Asia. MSSA will serve as a non-profit space advocacy organization dedicated to the human exploration and settlement of the planet Mars.
The new group will also act as the main authority for organizing the Indian Rover Challenge (IRC), part of the Mars Society's Rover Challenge Series (RCS). MSSA teams comprise of alumni of more than 15 rover teams from across southern Asia.
MSSA would like to thank Mars Society Executive Director Lucinda Offer, Mars Society President Dr. Robert Zubrin and everyone from the U.S. organization for their constant guidance and support in creating the new chapter. It wouldn't have been possible without you.
