Ray Reich, a Washington resident and former Gunnery physics and astronomy teacher, will present Going to Mars? Not so Fast. This illustrated presentation will take place Tuesday, September 10, 2019 @ 6:30 p.m. at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington, CT. There has been a fascination with Mars since long before the first steps on the moon. The Red Planet has been the subject of  innumerable works of sci-fi  and inspired
countless dreams of adventure and exploration. Now, after decades of scientific breakthroughs, research and determination, we're finally going to do it: humans are going to Mars. But maybe not so fast! The distance, time and speed needed for Mars manned missions cannot be merely scaled up from NASA's successful Apollo program designed sixty years ago. Warp speed travel is fine for Star Wars, but hardly suited for the real world. Join us as Ray details progress made to date, some of the difficulties encountered,expectations and the actual usefulness of a Mars base. After his talk Ray will be delighted to answer participant's questions.
Free and open to the public. Registration is requested.
