There's going to be a round table discussing 40 years of Mars exploration. Looks like the event will be in French, so if you don't understand the previous post, no point in reserving a spot ;)

Just scoping out possible new homeworlds in case Theresa May / Micheal Gove / Andrea Leadson become our unelected Prime Minister.
