The Mars Society Netherlands is organizing discussion meetings on the colonization of Mars. Considering the rapid technological advancements in space fare and plans to settle the red planet within the coming decade, we think it’s crucial that we talk about the ethical consequences of these plans.

March 2nd 2020, from 12 AM to 1:30 PM at the Ministry of Infrastructure and Watermanagement, RIjnstraat 8, The Hague
