To kick off the Martian extravaganza, media are invited to join NASA and local officials for opening remarks and a question-and-answer session at 5 p.m. EDT Friday in front of the town's flying saucer sculpture, located at 100 Pittsburgh Street.
Terrier will be available for interviews from 11:30 a.m. to noon Saturday to talk about NASA’s Moon to Mars plans, as well as how technology developed for space exploration often finds other purposes here on Earth – including in Mars, Pennsylvania.
Media should contact Clare Skelly at 202-358-4273 or firstname.lastname@example.org to attend the media availability on Friday and reserve a one-on-one interview with Terrier on Saturday.
This is NASA’s third time participating in the Mars celebration with science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) activities. Through events like this, the agency aims to inspire the next generation of explorers to pursue careers in these fields and join NASA’s mission to the Moon and Mars.
