For the price of a decent Pad Thai takeout, you can transport your mind to Mars to discover the secrets of the red planet. Was there life on Mars? Are we alone? Is there going to be free beer? Andrew Kessler, NASA hotshot and nerd extraordinaire, will tell his incredible story of how he and 130 astronomical eggheads got the Phoenix rover from Cape Canaveral, FL to the cold Martian desert 140 million miles away.
Learn about temperamental space robots, updates on the otherworldly Curiosity Mission and why Brooklyn should put down their kale chips and start caring about kick-ass space exploration!
Come with me to Nerd Nite NYC and join fellow astro-geeks for a night of Martian mayhem!
