Everyone is invited to come and hear our panelists discuss the exploration of Mars - past, present and future.  What evidence is there of life on Mars?  How do the Mars rovers work?  What are the challenges of sending men and women to Mars?  Why should we go?  Can we afford it?  Would a space elevator work on Mars?
