On Saturday 19th January 2002, the Mars Society UK will be
hosting a 1-day symposium entitled "Mars on Earth: Life on
Mars" and will present Society members, space professionals
and members of the general public to find out more about Mars,
our attempts to explore Mars both with robotic and human
missions, and the potential for life on Mars.

The symposium is to be held at the National Hockey Stadium
Conference Centre, a prestigious facility centrally located in
Milton Keynes, England, with convenient road, rail and air links
(London Luton airport).

Registration for the event starts at just £10.00 (17.00 Euros),
and accommodation can be arranged at a number of hotels all
within easy walking distance of the symposium venue.


Speakers for the event include:

  • Professor Colin Pillinger, Principal Investigator, Beagle 2
  • Doctor Robert Zubrin, author of "The Case for Mars",
    architect of the Mars Direct humans-to-Mars mission profile
    and President of the Mars Society

  • Doctor Charles Frankel, European Space Agency, and member of
    the Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station project
  • Martyn Fogg, Terraforming Expert

    With further speakers to be announced shortly.

    Attending the Event

    The symposium is open to any and all who have an interest in the
    exploration of Mars. On-the-door registrations will be available
    (depending on numbers), but to avoid disappointment, use our registration

    ensure you have a hotel room reserved for you as well, should you require it!
