Lecture: My Life as an Astronaut

presented by Col. Randolph "Komrade" Bresnik

2:00 PM Friday, June 29, 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.

Would you like to meet an astronaut? or to be an astronaut? or work for NASA? or are you just fascinated by all things related to astronomy and space? In this family-friendly event, Col. Bresnik will share his experiences in space, answer questions, and provide an opportunity to take a photo or get an autograph. Intended for younger audiences. A great chance for kids to meet and be inspired by “a real, live astronaut”! This event is intended for younger audiences.
