The Mars Society is pleased to announce that the 23rd Annual International Mars Society Convention will be convened Thursday-Sunday, October 15-18, 2020, all over the world via the Internet!
Through the use of unique technology provided by the TMRO company of Anaheim, California, it will be possible to not only hold debates, panel discussions and presentations, but to allow people from all countries to participate, posing questions and interacting with each other, creating a virtual global convention of a type never before seen.
The four-day space conference will be free, and bring together prominent scientists, policymakers, entrepreneurs and space advocates to discuss the significance of the latest scientific discoveries, technological advances and political-economic-social developments that could affect plans for the human exploration and settlement of Mars. As always, the convention will involve a wide variety of timely plenary talks, panel discussions and public debates concerning key issues bearing on human Mars exploration.
