From an early age, Zac had a fascination with Mars. The possibility of people visiting the Red Planet captivated his imagination, fueled by the rover tracks left by the Pathfinder. From that moment he began to investigate what it would take to move from rover tracks to footprints. This investigation began as a hobby that has transformed into a life goal.
Now, he is looking for ways to incorporate the technology that will take us to Mars on Earth. The same problems that will face humans on Mars are in abundance on Earth. Food, water, shelter, and communication are need to be tackled before we send anyone into deep space. These technologies can be used to improve life on Earth and advance the Martian mission, today.
When we learn to grow food on Mars, we will solve world hunger here on Earth.

At 30 minute talk I did at the Telus Spark center in Calgary Alberta, during their Destination Mars theme night. This was a talk aimed to answer the most common "why" questions I had received when talking to the public about traveling to Mars.
