This is the website for the Dallas / DFW chapter of The Mars Society. The local chapter was formed in September 2003 with 5 members, and has grown to more than 10 members at each monthly meeting.
Our members are space advocates and space enthusiasts from Dallas, Plano, McKinney, Arlington, Fort Worth, and all over the DFW Metroplex and North Texas. The Mars Society advocates human exploration of the Red Planet, for the purposes of science, exploration, and settlement.
The Dallas Chapter is working on several activities, including education and awareness outreach, political activities, but is primarily focused right now on hosting the 14th Annual International Mars Society Convention on August 4th – 7th, to be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Grapevine, TX, a short distance from the DFW airport.
