House Members Lamar Smith & Donna Edwards in Clinton-Trump Space Policy Debate at 2016 Mars Society Convention

With just seven weeks to go until the U.S. presidential election, campaigning between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump continues to heat up. To the regret of many space advocates, neither candidate has made extensive comments about their plans for NASA, the future of the U.S. space program and mission priorities.

To better inform the public about the likely impact a Clinton or Trump administration would have on America's space program, including planning for human Mars exploration, the Mars Society has organized an important public debate to be held as part of its
19th Annual International Mars Society Convention on Friday, September 23rd at 8:00 pm at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.

Participating in the Clinton-Trump policy debate are two veteran members of the House of Representatives:

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Chairman
U.S. House Committee on Science, Space & Technology

Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD), Member
U.S. House Committee on Science, Space & Technology

Join us for what will certainly be an interesting and timely debate! Full information about the 2016 Mars Society Convention is currently 
available online, including registration details, banquet dinner reservations and the complete program itinerary.
