Kathy Gibson is at SAP SuccessConnect in Berlin – When a small group of people leaves Earth to set up the first off-planet colony on Mars, it will be following the natural progression of the human race to explore new territories – and it is hoped it will inspire people to solve some of the pressing issues at home. Adriana Marais, Mars candidate and head of innovation at SAP Africa, believes that extra-terrestrial migration is really the only option left for mankind.
ITWeb and Micro Focus are pleased to announce that Dr Adriana Marais will be the keynote speaker at ‘Experience Micro Focus Universe 2018’, the first regional-focused Micro Focus customer conference.
During her address, Marais will discuss her research in quantum biology and the origins of life, the technology required to sustain terrestrial life on Mars and the various projects aiming to send human missions there. She believes the establishment, and potential discovery of evidence of life on Mars, would be one of the most profound possible contributions of science to humanity.
As a child, theoretical physicist Dr. Adriana Marais has always wanted to live on a different planet. The opportunity for a one-way ticket to live on Mars presented itself when she picked up a newspaper and saw a call for volunteers to participate in the Mars One project.
Africa needs to define its own path when it comes to the fourth industrial revolution and look at what technology is appropriate for its societies, according to aspiring Martian and Head of Innovation at software manufacturer SAP Africa Adriana Marais, who is the headline speaker at the South African Technology Network (SATN) international conference later this year.
