Lecture: Space Exploration

presented by Col Randolph "Komrade" Bresnik and Rebecca M. Bresnik Esq.

8:00 PM Wednesday, June 27, 2018
John Drew Theater at Guild Hall
158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY 11937


Montauk Observatory is honored to have the opportunity to host a true American hero: Randolph “Komrade” Bresnik who, in December 2017, returned from 139 days in space as Commander of the International Space Station (ISS). Still on active duty, Col. Bresnik has been with NASA since 2004. His background includes a highly distinguished, and decorated, career in the US Marine Corps.

"Space Exploration" is the title of a talk that will be presented by both Col. Bresnik and his wife, Rebecca M. Bresnik Esq., Associate Chief Counsel for International Matters at NASA's Johnson Space Center and the lead attorney for the ISS. In this program, the audience will have a rare opportunity to learn about space from the insiders: what it's like to live and work in space, to be an astronaut and responsible for the ISS, its overall mission success, the safety of its crew and station; as well as what is involved in handling the complex challenges of one of the most ambitious international collaborations (22 participating member countries) ever attempted. The Bresniks are the two people best able to provide these insights. This event is intended for ages high school and up.
