Description

Humans will probably be walking on the surface of Mars by the early 2030s.  As students today, you will see - and may be able to participate in - some of the most extraordinary events in human history.  You will see whether humans can live on Mars and whether Mars ever was able to sustain life in the past (or present).

In this talk, I will discuss how NASA, industry, and others are planning on going to Mars and discuss the amazing science that we is currently going in in preparation for sending human explorers.  We will also discuss how you can help advance this historic goal.
