I am delighted to announce that I’ll be talking at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, an event being held Saturday, October 7, 2017, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM.

My talk is being staged at the Charles Simonyi Space Gallery at the Museum of Flight – the largest independent, non-profit air and space museum in the world, housing over 175 aircraft and spacecraft, tens of thousands of artifacts, millions of rare photographs, and dozens of exhibits and experiences.

Reception, lecture, book signing

Come join me for an evening reception, lecture and book signing and discussion about my book, Mars: Our Future on the Red Planet. It is the companion book to the National Geographic six-part MARS series with Ron Howard, whose foreword opens the book with work now underway as the MARS television production is readying its second season.

I’ll offer the latest news on Mars exploration, the potential for use of the Moon as testing ground to enable the reach for the Red Planet, as well as the prospects and problems of settlement of humans on Mars.
