TUESDAY, November 28, 6:30–8:30 pm
Science Café is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore current topics in science and technology. Science Café programs take place in coffee shops, bars and restaurants around Raleigh.
Location: Zely and Ritz at 301 Glenwood Ave. Directions
Topic: Human Space Flight: Return to the Moon and Mission to Mars
Speakers: Dr. Fred Dejarnette and Dr. Andre Mazzoleni from NCSU Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
NASA's Vision for Space Exploration plans for a return to the moon by the end of the next decade to pave the way for eventual Mars colonization. After completing the International Space Station and retiring the shuttle fleet by 2010, humans and robotic explorers are set to work together on these new journeys.
This Science Cafe will explore the technical aspects of the human species next steps off planet earth. These steps may include following a wave of robotic probes that will prepare the way for a permanent human presence and garner the resources needed to secure the survival of our future generations.
