India is expected to launch a Mars mission in early November. If the launch is successful, the Indian Space Research Organization (IRSO) will become only the fourth space agency after the United States, Europe, and Russia to launch a successful mission to Mars. The launch is viewed by many analysts as a national victory in the space race with China, but it also offers a greater opportunity for global collaborative efforts in space exploration. Please join the Atlantic Council as this esteemed panel discusses the US, Chinese, and Indian space programs, and what this latest Indian mission means for the future of space exploration.
Please use the West Tower elevators when you arrive.
