Greetings Martians on Earth! The Queensland Chapter of Mars Society Australia is now back in the swing of things! 

We recently had our first meeting for the new year last Tuesday the 15th of January, where we saw the ceremonial handover of leadership from Shaun Strong to myself, Chris Andrews. 

Coming up in the MSA QLD branch this year will see a new Bi-monthly podcast series with ambitions for LIVE streaming, that will feature: 

  • The Latest Space News 
  • The Latest Mars Society News 
  • Interviews & Guest Speakers
  • Spaceman asks the Public 
  • How to get involved 

The podcast is a joint production between the Mars Society Australia QLD chapter and my good friend Nate Edwards at Tesla Entertainment. 

You can check out the podcast promotional video on our new Youtube page (www.youtube.com/marssocietyaustralia), please feel free to head on over and show your support by subscribing and commenting on the videos.

The Youtube channel will also be home to a new Lecture series, that once a month will see a new expert come on board and talk through a wide range of subjects from Science, Engineering, Astronomy and much more! 

If you have any stories or events you would like to be featured, do not hesitate to contact me through qld@marssociety.org.au

Also in our schedule, we plan to host many Presentations, meet-ups, Field trips as well as planning ways to increase our membership and raise awareness to the general public. 

I am very excited to be apart of this great International movement, and look forward to the new year ahead of us. I encourage those that live in QLD and Brisbane in particular to come and join in and contribute in any way you can. 

On to Mars!
