Join us !
Our first conference in Switzerland, which took place on December 3rd 2009 at the University of Neuchatel with the support of Banque Cantonale Neuchâteloise, EPFL and University of Neuchâtel, showed a strong interest in Switzerland for the exploration of Mars. Building on this success, we decided to gather the people who, in Switzerland, share the ideas and motivations of the Mars Society and we created this association as a member of the Mars Society worlwide family. The purpose of our action, around a core of Swiss specialist of Mars exploration, is to inform those people who are interested in the subject, to help them communicate and to motivate them to promote our project upon public or private deciders. We use this internet website as well as our Facebook page, and direct mailing to members, to coordinate this action. Mars exploration has a strong attractive and federative effect upon a variety of industries and fields of research, especially considering the prospect of manned flights. Its scope extends from astronautics to waste recycling, and through geology, exobiology, architecture, medicine and so on. Throughout this spectrum, it is focused on microtechnologies and robotics in which Swiss people excel. Throughout the world, people are working on the project, developing and applying the most advanced ideas and technologies in their own fields. It is tremendously rich in potential wealth creation for the decades to come. It is a world of passion and excitement into which we invite you to enter. We made the first step. Come and join us!
