How many of you would accept a one way ticket to Mars? How about an opportunity to work with the candidates of such a journey before & during their critical mission? Manifest Mars 2028 is an open space forum where arguments are weighed for and against methods proposed to achieve such a goal. A brief presentation will be made for such an endeavor in the year 2028, followed by a moderated discussion over cocktails at EVR Lounge, NYC.
We will be joined by Nikolay Moiseev & Ted Southern of Final Frontier Desing, who will be demonstrating the use of their latest model spacesuit technology.
We intend to bring about a better understanding of the viability of current Mars colonist proposals, and to take each opinion into consideration in the development of a road map for a fundamentally unique approach to the colonies of the 21st Century: P2P Colonies.
