The Mars Society, led by Dr. Robert Zubrin, would like to take a moment to thank everyone who came to the 22nd Annual International Mars Society Convention in Los Angeles last week.
With 350 (+) people attending the convention's daily sessions, as well as the 300 who came to our sold-out Saturday evening banquet, this year's international conference was one of the most successful to date.
In addition, we would like to express our appreciation to all of the speakers who participated in the plenary talks, public debates, panel discussions and track talks, leading to a fascinating and timely forum.
We were also pleased to welcome the inspiring student team finalists of the Mars Colony Design Contest, many of whom came from all around the world.
Finally, a strong shout-out and thank you to our dedicated and professional staff and volunteers without whom we could not manage (at all) during these important four days of discussion on Mars and space exploration. Stay tuned for an announcement in the coming month on the dates and location of next year’s Mars Society Convention.
