Mars Papers Curated Collection

in 2023 Steve Stewart inquired about the procedure to post his work on settlement of Mars to the Mars Papers collection.

For whatever reason, this forum does not appear to contain a topic dedicated to reporting on the collection of 600 papers in the Mars Papers site.

I note that there no papers added to the site in 2022, but one was recently added in 2023.

With any luck (and a bit of editing) Steve Stewart's work may well appear in the collection some time this year.

Re: Mars Papers Curated Collection

Index to the Mars Papers collection.

It appears (from a first scan) that most of the papers included in the collection were given at Mars Society conventions.

Here is a screen scrape of the table of index terms:

Currently the MarsPapers archive contains over 600 documents. Each document is categorized by one of the following keywords:
