Re: Robert Zubrin speaking June 7th at National Space Society conference

Robert Zubrin is President of Pioneer Astronautics, an aerospace R&D company located in Lakewood, Colorado.

The ongoing revolution in space launch has radically improved the prospects for the exploration and settlement of Mars. In particular, the rapid development of the Starship system by SpaceX is offering the near term availability of a fully reusable heavy lift booster that also has the capability to transport large exploration missions and considerable numbers of immigrants to the Red Planet.

In this talk we will examine potential utilization of the Starship to support Mars exploration, base building, and colonization. Various options for its operation, including Earth to LEO delivery, LEO to TLI delivery, and one way and round trip transportation to and from Mars will all be considered. We will also examine infrastructure on Mars enabled by the Starship, and power and other local resource utilization requirements generated by the Starship in its various potential modes of operation. An optimal plan for using the Starship to enable the exploration and settlement of Mars will then be presented.

Sounds good as we have looked at some of this...

Lots of speakers for the event...
