Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)

We are establishing a taskforce to investigate options and arrive at a design concept for manufacturing infrastructure for the initial Martian settlement. A parallel task force (not at MIT) is simulatenously investigating options for mining, and refining of materials... (ie materials extracted from the Martian environment.) We are looking for interested MIT students and others who would like to help us investigate the manufacturing options. Please email Joe Palaia for more information. We prefer that you attend all or most sessions although your input could still be used if you cannot attend them all.
