Lecture - Mission to Mars - Steps toward the First Human Journey to the Red Planet by Pascal Lee

  

The first human mission to Mars will be humanity's greatest adventure in space exploration in the 21st century. As with all expeditions, its success will depend on planning. The first steps are already under way, as we achieve longer spaceflight missions, plan for deep space journeys, and work in extreme environments on Earth viewed as Mars "analogs."

 

Leading planetary scientist Dr. Pascal Lee will share the progress made around the world, from the Arctic to Antarctica, from basement labs to the International Space Station, to achieve the first human voyage to Mars. In turn, he will examine the what, why, how, when, and who of the first human mission to Mars.

 

Internationally recognized for his research on water on Mars, the origin of Mars' moons, and planning the future human exploration of Mars, Dr. Pascal Lee holds positions at the Mars Institute, the SETI Institute, and NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California.

 

Following the lecture, copies of his book "Mission: Mars" will be available for signing by River Oaks Bookstore. "Mission: Mars" was the winner of the 2015 Prize for Excellence in children's science.
