|(Washington, DC) -- July
1 -- In anticipation of the first images to arrive from Mars in
over 20 years this Friday, the National Space Society (NSS) has
coordinated image viewing with Planet Hollywood and created a Mars
celebration website with details on nationwide activities.
"The Mars Pathfinder is one of a number of new missions to Mars that will pave the way for human exploration early in the next century," said David Brandt, NSS Executive Director. "The NSS advocates eventual human settlement of Mars, so it makes perfect sense for us to be a clearinghouse for Mars activities around the country."
Mars activities include:
Thursday, July 3, 7:00 pm EDT:
Friday, July 4, beginning at 8:30 pm
Monday, July 7, 7:00 pm EDT:
