      MARS MOVIE NIGHT presents: ONE WAY ASTRONAUT and the ULTIMATE MARS CHALLENGE SPECIAL EVENT IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA:

      Friday, September 20 at 7:00pm
      Town and Country Resort & Convention Center


      The Mars Society–San Diego’s MARS MOVIE NIGHT presents:

      ONE WAY ASTRONAUT (2013)

      An independent documentary surrounding people who have signed up to leave Earth to be the first human settlers on the planet Mars. It follows aspiring astronauts Stephan, Sara, Henri and Beatriz who, like tens of thousands of applicants to the Mars One project from around the world, say they are willing to spend the rest of their lives on the red planet. It is the story of Mars One and its founder Bas Lansdorp in the project's early stages. Space experts answer questions about the likelihood of Mars One succeeding and discuss the kind of risks the astronauts will be facing. Worldwide interest in the Mars One mission is a tell-tale of our society today and its hopes for itself.

      NOVA: ULTIMATE MARS CHALLENGE (2012)

      Why go back to Mars? Far from dead, Mars holds untold potential. Nearly half a century of Mars exploration has yielded tantalizing clues that Mars may once have harbored life—and may harbor it still. The extraordinary landing of a revolutionary rover named Curiosity—which successfully touched down inside the Gale Crater—means we have wheels down on the planet once again, in the form of the most sophisticated robot ever to rove the Mars surface. Will NASA's bold mission and this marvel of technology answer some of our biggest questions and usher in a new golden age of exploration? NOVA goes behind the scenes on NASA's quest to solve the riddles of the red planet.”
