How will Humanity Return to the Moon by the Mid-2020s and Go to Mars by the Mid-2030s?

If we find life on Mars, what next?  

These are just a few of the fascinating topics that will be explored at the 2022 Humans to Mars Summit (H2M) that is taking place on May 17-19, 2022, at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Washington, D.C. The Human to Mars Summit is the annual conference of Explore Mars, Inc., and is the largest annual conference in the world dedicated to the goal of a sustainable human presence on Mars starting no later than the 2030s.

"We are entering the golden age of space exploration,” stated Explore Mars CEO, Chris Carberry. “H2M 2022 will not only examine how humans will return to the surface of the Moon by the mid-2020s and then travel to Mars by the mid-2030s but will also consider the extraordinary opportunities and innovations expected to materialize over the next decade.”

“Explore Mars coordinates industry cooperation, international collaboration, and public determination to ensure human exploration of Mars by the 2030s.

Through our many successful programs and reporting, including the Humans to Mars Summit Series, and the Community Workshops for Achievability and Sustainability of Human Exploration of Mars, Explore Mars brings space stakeholders, policy makers, and others together to reach a consensus on issues that have frequently divided them.”
