The Mars Society is pleased to announce that Dr. Setthivoine You, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist of Helicity Space, will discuss his company’s Helicity Drive, a novel fusion drive concept, during the 24th Annual International Mars Society Convention, set for October 14-17, 2021.

Helicity Space is developing in-space fusion propulsion and power technology, critical to enabling humanity’s access to the solar system, with a Helicity Drive-powered flight to Mars expected to take two months, without planetary alignment.

Dr. You received his M.S. degree and Ph.D. in physics from the Imperial College London and spent 18 years involved in experimental and theoretical research in plasma physics at the University of Washington, CalTech, and the University of Tokyo before entering the private sector.
