Zubrin film to be shown April 14th
The film "The Mars Underground: Pioneers for the Next World" will be shown on Wednesday, April 14 in the Reading Room of the Department of Space Studies.
This film is "the incredible true tale of one scientist (Dr. Robert Zubrin) fighting impossible odds to change the direction of the space program, turn science fiction into science fact and lead human beings into the next great frontier." This documentary features Zubrin as the aerospace visionary and his radical theory that could alter the future of human space travel forever. That theory involves the establishment of permanent human settlements and the greening of the Red Planet into a second livable Earth.
The film will start at 12:10 pm. Bring your lunch and listen to and watch Zubrin and his supporters and detractors. This film will give you good background for Zubrin's visit to campus on Monday, April 19th.
