Humans living on Mars has been a long-time dream which may now appear within reach. The technological, ethical and environmental challenges are however enormous and require transdisciplinary, ground-breaking science. The Bremen Human Space Exploration Seminar is an exchange platform for scientists committed to envisage and shape a sustainable Mars Exploration program for the benefit of humankind and Earth.

Date and time

The seminar takes place every third or second Wednesday of the month at 13:30 CET/CEST online via zoom and consists of a 40-minute talk followed by a 40-minute discussion.
