Join James Burk, IT Director for the Mars Society, and Sean McClinton, President of the Space Entrepreneurs, for a "Fireside Chat" on the Economics of Mars.

Interest in Mars has steadily grown in the past few years, and with the recent successful landing of Insight, it's a great time to think about what, if any, commercial opportunities may exist relating to the Red Planet today and discuss the opportunities to build careers, start businesses, and discuss progress that's being made and planned with Mars.

We'll start with networking, followed by the Fireside Chat, then have plenty of time for Q & A, and end with additional networking at the end. Dessert and coffee will be provided.

Come join us for this exciting look forward to Mars!
