A unique research & outreach center has been proposed as a intermediate step on the road to settling the red planet. This facility will be a 25,000 sq ft replica of the first permanent Mars settlement, located on Earth near a major metropolitan area. Open to the public, it will provide a glimpse of what life might be like in the early Mars frontier. It will generate revenue to support R&D efforts, and the public will have access to this groundbreaking work. Join us to discuss the details of the center, including how to best use it to capture the imagination and excitement of the public.
