Seminars

Seminars are about the activities, technologies, biology, and much more involved in making life multi-planetary and establishing a permanent human presence on planet Mars. Join us in learning from leaders pioneering the field during MarsU Seminars held each month as 60-minute Zoom Webinars and later uploaded to the MarsU Youtube Channel, unless otherwise noted. See the individual announcements for webinar access details.
