The CSS is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Zac Trolley as the Standing Session Chair, Education and Outreach.
On April 8th, 2015, as NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter was passing over Mount Sharp, it captured this stunning photograph of the Curiosity Rover.
NASA's mission to Mars has been a long time in the making. In an attempt to further their efforts, NASA is now reaching out to the public to submit their designs for shelter, food, water, oxygen, communication and well-being of colony inhabitants. They are looking for technical submission which should include how the equipment or systems will be developed, tested, implemented and operated. There will be three prizes for top submissions from a total award pool of $15 000.
