Repeating event. Participants welcome at any session

Come discuss issues of living in space, especially how to construct and grow the first Mars Settlement. Mars is of special interest because it has all the chemical elements needed to grow food, and manufacture plastics and construction materials. If you are interested, we may get into subjects of interplanetary transportation,
supplies of various materials, Lunar settlement, asteroid utilization, orbital settlements, or go interstellar.
