For more information, please visit The Mars Society conference website, www.marssociety.org/portal/c/Conventions/2010-annual-convention. Lucinda Land is a life-time member of the Mars Society and has been familiar with Dr. Zubrin’s Mars Direct plan since NASA’s adoption in 1989. She began her activist role on the Political Task Force raising awareness within the organization. As a member of the political web team and a regional coordinator for the east coast, she directly aided members to write and meet with their local representatives.



She continued her advocacy in 2004 at the first Space Exploration Alliance (SEA) Blitz for the Moon, Mars, and Beyond Initiative. Since then, she has participated in and led four lobbying efforts, her last being in July of 2009. Shortly after her first SEA Blitz, she was inducted into the Mars Society steering committee as well as given the position of Director of Public Relations. In 2006, she earned her teaching credentials in Geoscience and is now a tenured, clear-credentialed, secondary education teacher in San Jose, California. Currently on a leave of absence from her role as a Physical Science teacher, she now resides in Glasgow, Scotland earning a Masters of Science degree in Inter-Professional Science Education and Communication at the University of Glasgow.

William Simon
has always had an interest in space and technology. In 1973, Mr. Simon was an advisor of the California Museum of Science and Industry’ sponsored Explorer Post call the “Space Science Colloquium” that led a group of students and educators to see the launch of Skylab. Out of this grew the organization called “OASIS” (Organization for the Advancement of Space Industrialization and Settlement), a Los Angels based chapter of the L5 Society. The L5 Society was a national organization promoting the idea of colonies in space. July 20,1969 marks the time we first left the bonds of Earth’s gravity and stood on another world, and there was a desire to preserve this momentous occasion through the ages. A model existed for how this might be accomplished: the Passover Seder. Here, embodied in a story that a father tells to his sons is the Exodus from Egypt that has been told for thousands of generations. This then became the basis of how we might preserve the story of humans first leaving Earth. We tell the story of Apollo 11 and what led up to it. “Evoloterra (The Space Seder)” was a collaborative project. But it was written primarily by Rand Simberg, Bill Simon and Margaret Jordan. It was first published in 1989. Mr. Simon has his B.S. degree in Industrial Technology with a emphasis in electronics from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. In 1970, he founded Simco Laboratories, Inc. which is a manufacturer of electronic instruments and industrial controls. He is also the president of Micro Luminetics, Inc., a manufacturer of scientific CCD cameras for high-resolution, low-light imaging applications such as astronomy. In addition, Mr. Simon holds two patents on thermoelectric cooling systems with applications for CCD cameras and is a former vice president of OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Space Industrialization and Settlement) a Los Angels based chapter of the L5 Society, grass-roots space advocate organization as well as a member of UCLA based CSEOL ( Center for the study of evolution and origin of Life ) Art, Photography, Graphic Arts, and web site design.
