MISSION: MARS – Feb 21, East Bay
• What we'll do The first human mission to Mars will be our greatest adventure of the 21st-century. As with all expeditions, its success will depend on planning. The first steps are already under way: achieving longer spaceflight missions, planning for deep space journeys beyond the Moon, and exploring extreme terrestrial environments as Mars “analogs.” Dr. Pascal Lee will discuss progress made around the world — from the Arctic to Antarctica, from basement labs to the International Space Station — to achieve the first human voyage to Mars. He will explore the what, why, how, when, and who of our first journey to the Red Planet. A companion event happens in the Peninsula on Feb 20, hosted by Wonderfest: ( • What to bring • Important to know Register with Eventbrite, here: (
