Next Stop: Mars?

Paul Stengel

What is the fascination with Mars? Paul Stengel has a hunch.

As part of the Montauk Observatory lecture series, the retired, award-winning science teacher will discuss the drive behind exploring the Red Planet, the technology required, and what he expects astronauts will do once they get there on Friday, August 3, at 6:30 p.m. at the Montauk Library, located at 871 Montauk Highway in Montauk.
