> Talk Abstract
> The first human mission to Mars will likely be humanity’s greatest  
> undertaking in space exploration in the 21st century. As with all  
> expeditions, its success will depend critically on preparation. The  
> first steps towards a human journey to the Red Planet are already  
> underway, as we continue to explore extreme environments on Earth  
> and prepare for our return to the Moon. Human journeys to near-Earth  
> asteroids and to the moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, will also  
> help pave the way. In time, humans will be ready for their first  
> missions to the Red Planet.
> Dr Pascal Lee will discuss progress being made around the world to  
> achieve these milestones. He will examine the what, why, when, who,  
> and how of a human mission to Mars, and most importantly, he will  
> explain the how.
> About Dr Pascal Lee
> Dr Pascal Lee is Chairman of the Mars Institute, a planetary  
> scientist with the SETI Institute, and the Director of the Haughton- 
> Mars Project at NASA Ames ResearchCenter. He has worked extensively  
> in the Arctic and Antarctica, viewed as “analogs” for the Moon and  
> Mars. He first proposed the Cold Early Mars Model based on his  
> geological field work in Earth’s polar regions. Dr Lee was recently  
> scientist/pilot in the first field test of NASA’s new Lunar Electric  
> Rover, a small pressurised rover concept currently under development  
> for the return of humans to the Moon.
