John Batchelor and I welcomed back Chris Carberry of Explore Mars, Inc. to tell us about their upcoming annual event, Humans to Mars Summit, which will be held in May of this year at GWU.  Not only did Chris tell us about this year's Summit, but he also mentioned several of the speakers for the event.  John asked him about rocket reusability and 3D printing for future Mars missions.  Chris had much to say about these advances but he was extremely confident about the possible contribution to Mars flights via 3D printing.  I asked if Explore Mars was focusing on the 2016 presidential campaign.  Chris said they would be working to make sure all the candidates knew the facts about going to Mars to help assure their support for future human missions to Mars.  John asked about the private sector doing humans to Mars flights, settlements and more, either alone or with NASA.  Don't miss how Chris responded to this subject.

You can email Mr. Batchelor or Chris Carberry through me.   The Explore Mars website is  Chris can also be reached through his websit
