Bangor - The Challenger Learning Center of Maine is pleased to announce the launch of a new afternoon lecture/Q&A series. Beginning Nov. 16 from 2 to 3 p.m., and continuing on each Monday in January 2016, Challenger will present experts from NASA as well as locally, who will share information on a variety of topics related to space exploration and earth science.

The inaugural presentation in November, "Thriving and Surviving on Mars," will feature a live videoconference arranged exclusively for Challenger from the Armstrong Flight Research Center in California (formerly the Dryden Center). Dr. David Alexander, BS, M.Ed, will focus on the challenges that must be met in order to survive a long duration stay on the planet Mars by exploring the movie, "The Martian," through Challenger's "virtual classroom," to discuss some of the challenges NASA astronauts will have to overcome to survive on the red planet.
