Since I was a young child Mars held a special fascination for me. It was so close and yet so faraway. I have never doubted that it once had advanced life and still has remnants of that life now. I am a dedicated member of the Mars Society,Norcal Mars Society National Space Society, Planetary Society, And the SETI Institute. I am a supporter of Explore Mars, Inc. I'm a great admirer of Elon Musk and SpaceX. I have a strong feeling that Space X will send a human to Mars first.
First Place for 2017 Mars Society Poster Contest Announced
A committee of Mars Society staff members took a close look at nearly two dozen creative designs submitted to the 2017 Mars Society Poster Contest. After a longer than expected review period, the winner of the annual competition was selected – Violaine Bourgeais (France).
Graphic artists were asked to submit a poster using the theme “Mars: From Imagination to Reality” for the 20th Annual International Mars Society Convention, set to take placeSeptember 7-10 at the University of California Irvine. As usual, the winning design will be used by the Mars Society to help promote its four-day space conference.
With submissions received from around the globe, the organization also announced the second and third place winners of the contest – Jennifer Claudio (U.S.) and Ed Sludden (U.K.) respectively. The Mars Society would like to express its appreciation to all of the talented participants in this year’s contest.
