Mars landing at LITE

by Mary Tutwiler

We’ve put a man on the moon, and now Russia is talking about a manned mission to Mars. Is it possible to moonwalk on the Red Planet? Cosmonaut Dr. Alexander Martynov of the city of Korolev, Russian Federation will be at LITE tomorrow, talking about his year in space aboard the International Space Station and how a manned mission to Mars will be achieved.

Two separate presentations are scheduled for Thursday, November 20.  The noon presentation will be of a technical nature and is intended for an adult audience.  The 6:00 p.m. presentation is intended for families with children as young as seven years old.  Each presentation will last approximately one hour and will be followed by a question and answer session. The presentations are free and open to the public and attendance is limited to the first 170 guests.  No reservations are required. For more information, please call LITE at 735-5483.
