On Tuesday the 10th of December Mars One will announce at a press conference in Washington DC that we contracted Lockheed Martin and SSTL for our first unmanned mission to Mars. The press conference will be followed by a Tweetup.
We’re very excited about contracting Lockheed Martin and SSTL. Lockheed Martin has a distinct legacy of participating in nearly every NASA mission to Mars. SSTL has an impressive track record in small, affordable satellite missions.
Livestream Press conference
The press conference will take place from 10:30am – 12:00pm (EST) in the National Press Club in Washington DC and will be live streamed. Several hours before the conference starts, you’ll find more information on the live stream on this page.
The press conference will be followed by a Tweetup and Q&A. It will start at 1:30 pm and will last until 2:30 pm (EST). We invite anyone interested to join the Tweetup live at the National Press Club in Washington DC, or online using the hashtag #AskMarsOne. You will be able to submit questions on that hashtag and the frequently asked ones will be answered by the Mars One, Lockheed Martin and SSTL panel.
