"Life In Space" Lecture With Prof. Harold Kozak

The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites adults, 18 and older, to a program about “Life in Space” being offered at Trailside Nature and Science Center in Mountainside. The lecture, supplemented with visual material, will take place on Saturday, March 8, from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m.The program is free, but donations are welcome. 

“This is a lecture you won’t want to miss,” said Freeholder Chairman Christopher Hudak.  “It answers the questions all of us have posed about living in outer space.”

Harold Kozak, a NASA Solar System Ambassador and Astronomy Adjunct Professor at Wagner College, will shed light on the intriguing topic of living in space. His lecture will focus on whether humans will eventually have to live in space and how they will survive the conditions.

Professor Kozak will discuss and illustrate how humans will become able to travel in space for extended periods of time; methods that will be used to find other habitable worlds; and current living conditions on the International Space Station. He also will talk about how humans in the future will travel to far-off worlds and the ways in which humans will “terraform” the landscapes of other planets.
