May 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Friday, May 18, 2018, 7:00 PM. “Next Stop, Mars”
Hardly a day goes by without Mars making news. NASA, Space X, Blue 
Origin & legacy aerospace giants, like Boeing and Lockheed, are 
determined to design and build the ships that will get us there, while 
competing mission architectures offered by Mars Direct, Mars One and 
NASA will tell us how to do it & survive 3 years away from home. This 
time the goal is not just to get there, but to stay. NASA Solar System 
Ambassador, Paul Stengel, a Southampton resident & retired, 
award-winning science teacher, will discuss space travel to Mars, the 
planet & more in this encore presentation!

Weather permitting, after the lecture Montauk Observatory astronomers 
will set up telescopes and give guided tours of the night sky.
