Learn about the future of space exploration with David Maclennan. NASA’s long-term vision is for a human mission to Mars, but its strategy for getting there is flawed. It doesn’t include the most logical step: a return to the Moon where a lot of the technology needed for a Mars mission could be first proven under real off-world conditions on the Moon.

David has been lecturing and writing about space exploration for over four decades and is a founder and former President of the NZ Spaceflight Association.

If the sky is clear, we’ll go outside after the talk and look through telescopes provided by the Wellington Astronomical Society.
