Explore Mars and the George Washington University Space Policy Institute present the The Humans to Mars (H2M) Summit, 6-8 May 2013 at the Lisner Auditorium of the George Washington University in Washington, DC.

What do we need to land humans on Mars by 2030? If you want to know the answer, we invite you to join us at the Humans to Mars Summit.

H2M will be a comprehensive Mars exploration conference to address the major technical, scientific, and policy-related challenges that need to be overcome to send humans to Mars by 2030. This summit will be one of the most authoritative and diverse Mars exploration conferences ever held. With involvement of key players from NASA, industry, the science community, and non-traditional players. Expect to rub shoulders with both established aerospace leaders as well as newer commercial space entity leaders.

Topics will include:

• robotic and human precursor missions
• launch systems
• Mars transit challenges
• space suit design
• human factors
• entry, descent and landing
• in situ resource utilization
• surface power
• science goals
• and many other topics


H2M will discuss space policy as well as ways to stimulate private sector participation in Mars exploration.
