The United States of Mars

Main Stage

The packing list for Mars is extensive. It requires a powerful rocket and crew spacecraft to safely transport humans and everything they need to survive and conduct meaningful work for at least three years. All 50 states are contributing to the effort, and we have mission-critical participation from our international partners as well. This session will provide a double course of the science, engineering, and massive collaboration behind the powerful transportation systems for NASA’s journey to Mars.
