Re: 13th Annual International Mars Society Convention
- Manning and others,I am familiar with Dr. Landis from the old NAR mags. And I have read his sci-fiin ANALOG magazine and seen him on the History Channel. If anyone can makethis event on short notice (no, I don't remember you mentioning it at the Wapak demo),please try and attend. It sounds like a lot of fun.Regards,Larry Rice

I do not remember if I mentioned or not that the 13th Annual International Mars Society convention is being held here in Dayton at the Marriott this coming week. www.marssociety.org
This is a great opportunity to hear national speakers including scientists from Glenn Research Center (Dr. Goeff Landis who used to be a member of NIRA among others), Mike Griffin (former NASA administrator), George Whitesides (CEO of Virgin Galactic), and others.
Saturday, August 7, is Mars Camp which is free and open to the public. There are many organizations participating in that event including the University of Dayton Advanced Rocket Team which might be of interest to CSAR members. In fact, the whole event might be of interest to CSAR members if you would care to pass the information along.
It is very good fortune that this event is so close at hand.
