“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.”

The #HumansToMars Web Event Series

 

Explore Mars has launched a series of online programs including a webinar series, a podcast (coming soon), and student/STEM programming. These discussions will cover a wide array of relevant and fascinating topics related to a permanent human presence in space.

However, it is not just programming that we all crave in these difficult times. Perhaps what we miss most are social gatherings. It will be a long time (if ever) before we take for granted going out for dinner or drinks with friends or family or having a reception or party. While nothing will be able to fill this void until the pandemic is in the past, Explore Mars would like to do our small part to create social activities during these hard times.

HUBBLE: 30 Years of Awe & Wonder
An Explore Mars Web Event

Thirty years ago, the Hubble Space Telescope was launched into space and became one of the greatest scientific instruments in history. Since its deployment, Hubble has made numerous important discoveries. Hubble discovered two new moons of Pluto, dubbed Nix and Hydra; that the universe’s expansion is not slowing down or even constant, but rather is inexplicably expanding; and that protoplanetary disks of gas and dust are ubiquitous around many young stars (reinforcing the idea that alien worlds are common in the universe).

Five-time Space Shuttle astronaut John Grunsfeld has a unique connection with the orbiting space telescope. Three of his shuttle flights missions were to repair Hubble, during which he conducted eight space walks that lasted over 58 combined hours. Grunsfeld is often affectionately called, ‘The Hubble Repairman’, and was the last person to touch the extraordinary space telescope. This discussion was facilitated by Mat Kaplan Host of Plenatary Radio

“Mars tugs at the human imagination like no other planet. With a force mightier than gravity, it attracts the eye to the shimmering red presence in the clear night sky.”
