The Planetary Society Reception

Washington, D.C., United States

Enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine and soft drinks (cocktails are available with cash bar), and hear remarks from The Planetary Society’s CEO Bill Nye, Board President Jim Bell, and others.

Our featured speaker will be Planetary Society Board member and former NASA “Mars Czar” Scott Hubbard, author of Exploring Mars: Chronicles from a Decade of Discovery, and is currently Professor of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Stanford University.  The reception occurs the same week as the Humans to Mars Summit 2016 and our program remarks will highlight The Society’s Humans Orbiting Mars report published last fall.

Space is limited and we expect this event to fill up quickly.  We look forward to meeting you!
