John Batchelor and I welcomed back Chris Carberry for a one segment discussion about the Explore Mars virtual and Humans2Mars rescheduling amid the virus outbreak. We talked about the new Humans2Mars event now planned for August 31-Sept. 1 in Washington, DC, plus the many virtual events Explore Mars is undertaking to keep Mars exploration and human adventure live as we go through the virus impacting us all.  Explore Mars has been live streaming their major events for years and has great experience in doing this though as you will hear, there are challenges doing it at this time.  Before ending the segment, we talked about Mars 2020, the sample return and "flying" on mars with a type of helicopter.
