The Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, California staged on Friday, October 28th an “All Mars Considered” panel discussion and book signing based on the book and documentary MARS: Our Future on the Red Planet.

Joining Griffith Observatory Curator and evening host of the event, Laura Danly, is Leonard David, Rob Manning, and Andre Bormanis.

The newly released book — MARS: Our Future on the Red Planet – is authored by Leonard David. This book considers the imminent settlement of humans on Mars as part of a major National Geographic Mars initiative this fall, including a documentary in partnership with Ron Howard, whose foreword opens the book.

    Mr. David. Very much have enjoyed your works over the years and want to see if you could direct me to sources of information/persons involved with the future of nanobot/cubesat outer space swarm exploration.

    I am an independent researcher seeking to learn more about the future of cubesat outer space exploration.

    Thanks in advance for your feedback.
