      Your comment: "For this team, the project isn’t just about designing a mission to Mars, it’s about improving life on Earth" caught my attention because it is also the title of one of my presentation given recently in California, Texas, Colorado, Arkansas, Missouri and Alabama space exploration interest groups. My presentation emphasizes the social aspects more than the technical aspects, which I believe appeals more to the general public. It that way it I hope that it helps promote the exploration of Mars. In any case, if you are interested in seeing this PowerPoint presentation, I would love to do it for your group. Marvin Arthur Hilton
