Welcome to the Mars Society -
National Capital Area Chapter
The Purpose of the Mars Society
To further the goal of the exploration
and settlement of the Red Planet. This will be done by:
1.Broad public outreach to
instill the vision of pioneering Mars.
Starting small, with hitchhiker payloads on
government funded missions, we intend to use the credibility that such activity
will engender to mobilize larger resources that will enable stand-alone private
robotic missions and ultimately human exploration.
2.Support of ever more aggressive
government funded Mars exploration programs around the world.
3.Conducting Mars exploration on
a private basis.
To this end, the National Capital
Area Chapter (NCAC) will use its proximity to the seat of government to rally
support for the objectives of the National Mars Society.
