Summary

As the world celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, take a journey to our next destination: Mars.

Our stellar group of interdisciplinary experts will explore the technological, physiological, and psychological challenges of sending humans to Mars, perhaps one day to live there permanently. And we will explore how we may one day make space as accessible as the skies, with ideas like the Space Elevator, the Space Fountain, the Launch Loop, and the Skyhook.

Join us as we contemplate what it will take to become a space-faring species.
