Dr. Robert Zubrin, a founder of the Mars Society, founder and president of Pioneer Astronautics, author of the influential book The Case for Mars, and winner of the prestigious Robert A. Heinlein Memorial Award spoke at Clemson, South Carolina Monday. The topic was near-future spaceflight and martian exploration.

On the topic of Mars, he stated, "Today, we're better prepared in every way for a mission to Mars than we were when we went to the moon in 1968. We're better prepared than anyone in history to launch a great age of exploration. If not now, when? If not us, then who?"

>Dr. Zubrin's plan for a manned mission to Mars would take about two thirds of one percent of the current US military budget to execute successfully.
