The Mars Society UK
To further the human exploration and settlement of Mars!
The Mars Society UK (MS:UK) has roots dating back to 1998. The very first meeting took place on the 4th July, 1998 and the guest speaker was Professor Colin Pillinger, head of the Mars Lander Beagle 2. The event also marked the first time Beagle 2 had been presented to the general public.
More than two decades after the initial society there’s a whole new team continuing the work of the Mars Society UK. The team relaunched this version of the Mars Society UK on 25 January 2019 at an event in Oxford (which you can watch on our media page).
In general, we work to educate the public, the media and government on the benefits of exploring Mars and creating a permanent human presence on the Red Planet.
