The Mars Society New Zealand is a small but growing group of Mars enthusiasts, who seek to actively support all kinds of research and education relating to Mars, and who enthusiastically support all viable initiatives to reach, explore and colonise the red planet. In 2014 we sponsored a student essay competition on going to Mars; in January 2015 several of our members are attending Spaceward Bound New Zealand.
We are affiliated to the International Mars Society (USA), with some of our members having joint membership. Haritina Mogosanu, who has a substantial footprint in many areas of space science and activities is the current President and one of the founding members of Mars Society NZ.
We support Spaceward Bound New Zealand initiative and welcome it to New Zealand.
