16th Annual International Mars Society Convention
Start Date: 8/15/2013
End Date: 8/17/2013End Time: Midnight
Event Description:
While robots continue to make great discoveries, the Obama administration has proposed a 60 percent cut in the Mars exploration program, and NASA’s human spaceflight program has been set adrift in the face of an oncoming fiscal tsunami. At the same time, three exciting private human Mars exploration initiatives have been launched Inspiration Mars, Mars One, and Mars Arctic 365, that might turn the tide. The question is: Can we replace the current chaos with a space program that is truly committed to breaking the bonds of Earth, or will America walk away from the future?

Featured speakers include:
•Dennis Tito, Founder and Executive Director of Inspiration Mars
•Dr. Steven Squyres, Principal Investigator, Mars Exploration Rover mission – Banquet Speaker
•Dr. Don Hassler and Dr. Cary Zeitlin, scientists, RAD radiation instrument on Curiosity rover
•Chris Voorhees, Vice President, Planetary Resources
...and many more!

We will have workshops where conference attendees can get involved in the Inspiration Mars, Mars One, and the Mars Arctic 365 private Mars initiatives. Leading scientists will also present the latest revolutionary discoveries from the Mars rovers and other robotic missions, and top engineers engaged in designing the craft that could take humans back to the Moon and on to Mars will lay out their plans. Scores of technical papers will be presented to advance the discussion on the way to reach the Red Planet. Add your ideas to the great debate!

To Mars, via Boulder! Be there!
