Hello Subscriber!

Here you have the second newsletter of the Mars Society Netherlands! Our society is growing and so is our network. Right now we're in the final stages of becoming an official organisation, so we can finally start organizing things for a larger public. 


Wear our logo!

The Mars Society Netherlands has ordered clothes with its beautiful logo on it. There are white t-shirts and polo's, with long sleeves or short sleeves and different models for men and women. The clothes are all made of 100 percent cotton. The short sleeved t-shirts we could even order in organic cotton. We know you cannot wait. Available soon in our webshop!




Recommended: Mars in Valencia

If you plan to go to the Spanish city of Valencia this summer, don't forget to visit the Science Museum in City of Arts and Sciences. On the top floor of it's imposing building, designed by the worldfamous architect Santiago Calatrava, you'll find an exhibition on the planet Mars. After starting with some general information on the red planet itself, you'll find presentations in text, images and objects on the exploration of the planet, it's portrayal in popular culture, thoughts on its inhabitants in science's past and present, etcetera. If you happen to be near, it's really worth a visit!


Summer break

Because some of us, and probably a lot of our readers as well, will be enjoying our well-earned summer holidays in the next month, there will be no edition of this newsletter in August. We will be back after the summer, though. Keep an eye on your inbox at the beginning of September for more news from the Mars Society Netherlands!
