The Mars Society (@TheMarsSociety) will convene its 19th Annual International Mars Society Convention on the beautiful tree-lined campus of the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. September 22 – 25, 2016, with main conference events taking place at the Edward J. Pryzbyla University Center.
Our four-day space conference will bring together leading scientists, engineers, policymakers, government officials, entrepreneurs and journalists to address the significance of the latest scientific discoveries, technological advances and political-economic developments that could open the way to the human exploration and settlement of the Red Planet.
Convention highlights will include a series of public debates on key issues and challenges facing Mars exploration and the future of the U.S. space program, as well as the final face-off of university student teams presenting designs for the Mars Society’s International Gemini Mars competition.
