What we're about
The Mars Society is the world's largest and most influential space advocacy organization dedicated to the human exploration and settlement of the planet Mars. Established by Dr. Robert Zubrin and others in 1998, the group works to educate the public, the media and government on the benefits of exploring Mars and creating a permanent human presence on the Red Planet.
Our Seattle chapter has been going strong since 1998, founded by Chris Vancil, David Stuart, and James Burk. Chris is on the Mars Society Steering Committee, David is a long-time NSS member and space activist, and James has been the Webmaster & IT Director of the Mars Society since 2011.
