One of the booths at the convention is managed by Susan Jewell of Mmaars, she had this to say:

“We are m-mars. It stands for mars moon astronaut academy and research sciences. We train analog astronauts. We train in a facility in the Mojave Desert. We are here today because we really want to expand the voice of the general public about space exploration and the integration of novel frontier technology. So if you come to our booth you can experience virtual reality, spaceship computers, the halolense and also interact with our robotic arm, and meet our crew that we are deploying in person in a few days time.”
