mars habitatJoin Greg McCauley, Executive Director of the Link Observatory and Space Science Center, as he covers a long-range program that could be used to get mankind from Earth to Mars, not just for a one-time visit but to establish a permanent civilization on the Red Planet. This epic undertaking will use everything from the International Space Station, to our own Moon, asteroid visits, comet explorations, and even the Martian moon Phobos as stepping stones to eventual colonization. He will discuss the use of reusable, recyclable space transportation and equipment as the building blocks of “cycling” networks to support and replenish the movement of people, cargo, and other essential materials between the Earth, the Moon, and Mars.
