NASA is developing new technologies and capabilities to send astronauts farther than ever before, first to an asteroid in the 2020’s, and onward to Mars by the 2030’s! They are furthering studies to determine the best possible technology astronauts will have to operate and survival skills necessary to overcome many challenges in order to survive and thrive on Mars.
David E. Alexander of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab will join us virtually to discuss some of the possibilities NASA is researching to ensure mission success to the Red Planet. There will be an opportunity for audience questions and comments.
