About the Austin Mars Society

The Austin Mars Society and the UT Austin Mars Society are the Austin chapters of The Mars Society. The UT Austin Mars Society is a registered student organization at the University of Texas at Austin. Members of the UT Austin Mars Society are by default entitled to membership to the Austin Mars Society chapter. Our goal is to encourage the participation of the population of Austin and surrounding areas of Texas, and to help them organize and link to The Mars Society members in USA and all over the world . We have monthly meetings and public outreach events such as exhibitions on Mars and The Mars Society at major space related events in Texas. We are also involved in lobbying efforts with our local law-makers/representatives by actively lobbying for increased American role in exploration of the Red Planet, Mars and the eventual visit and colonization by Humans to create a second living World for humanity and life.

The Mars Society is a non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization in the United States. Our federal tax identification number is 31-1585646. Donations to the Mars Society are tax deductible.
