“Frontier Mars” – Society VisViva

My team mate from Alpbach, Ingo Gerth, and his friend Roy Bijster who I met at SpaceUp EU, have set up Vis Viva, a society for space professionals where they are based in Delft, Holland.

Their first event was streamed live online today and the recording can be viewed here.  Their guests were Dr Susana Direito, discussing detection of life on Mars, the amazing Dr Adam Steltzner talking about the engineering of the entry, descent and landing of MSL ‘Curiosity’ via Skype from NASA JPL, and Professor Bernard Foing, expert of Mars analogue research, which particularly interested me given my involvement with the Austrian Space Forum Mars analogue mission this year.
