Join Dr. Pascal Lee, Director of the Haughton-Mars Project, Mars Institute for this free lecture at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver.
Dr. Lee's talk is titled: From the Earth to Mars - Steps Towards a First Human Mission to the Red Planet
The first human mission to Mars will likely be humanity’s greatest undertaking in space exploration in the 21st century. As with all expeditions, its success will depend critically on planning. The First steps towards a human journey to the Red Planet are already being taken, as we continue to explore extreme environments on Earth and prepare for our return to the Moon. Human journeys to near-Earth asteroids and to the moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, will also help pave the way.
Dr Pascal Lee will discuss progress being made in the Canadian Arctic and around the world to achieve these milestones, and most importantly, he will explain why we should.
