Online registration for the 19th Annual International Mars Society Convention is now open!
Scheduled to be held at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. from September 22-25, the Mars Society conference will provide a major platform for leading scientists, policymakers, government officials, entrepreneurs and journalists to discuss the significance of the latest scientific discoveries, technological advances and political-economic developments that could open the way for the human exploration and settlement of the Red Planet.
Convention highlights will include a series of public debates on key issues and challenges facing the human exploration of Mars, as well as the likely impact of the upcoming U.S. presidential and congressional elections (scheduled for a few weeks after the conference) on the long-term direction of America’s space program. In addition, the final face-off of university student teams presenting designs for the Mars Society’s International Gemini Mars competition will be held during the four-day convention.
