Speakeasy: Mission to Mars-Team Composition

When: 8 p.m.

What: NASA and its international partners are planning to send humans to Mars in the 2030s. Mission to Mars will challenge the frontiers of human collaboration as the crew lives and works in an extreme environment. The crew of four will be confined to a space the size of a small studio apartment for two-and-a-half years. As the crew travels further into deep space, the extreme distance will result in significant communication delays with Earth. The small crew will execute complex feats such as space walks, landing and launch from Mars with unparalleled levels of autonomy from ground control. It’s estimated that once the crew reaches Mars, ground control will receive updates, errors and information about emergencies with a 22-minute delay. This talk will be livestreamed to the C2ST Facebook page at www.facebook.com/C2ST1 at 8 p.m. so you may watch it from the comfort of your home.


Author Gene Schmiel will speak on the topic “General Jacob Dolson Cox and the Controversy over the Union command in the Maryland Campaign” at Camp Hill Wesley United Methodist Church at 7 p.m.

Extreme Storms Talk

When: 7:30 p.m.

What: Huge downpours, massive flooding, heat waves, prolonged droughts – these extreme events are occurring more frequently, and with greater intensity. One-hundred-year floods are occurring every year or two – is this a new normal? How are cities and regions responding and planning under such uncertainties? This talk will be livestreamed to the C2ST Facebook page at www.facebook.com/C2ST1 at 7:30 p.m. so you may watch it from the comfort of your home.
