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.

2.Support of ever more aggressive government funded Mars exploration programs around the world.

3.Conducting Mars exploration on a private basis.

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.

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.
