How’s your summer been on planet Earth?

We’ve hit August and I would bet that many of you have been filling your days recently with barbecues, day trips to the beach, and outdoor concerts — the enjoyable, but somewhat predictable summer fare. But have you done anything truly extraordinary this summer? If you’re like me, probably not. If you would, however, like a chance to live vicariously through someone who’s had an exceptionally unusual summer experience, you’re in luck: Brooklyn-based writer, Andrew Kessler, will appear at DUMBO’s powerHouse Arena tomorrow, August 3, for a celebration and book-signing of his new book, Martian SummerRobot Arms, Cowboy Spacemen, and My 90 Days with the Phoenix Mars MissionMartian Summer is Kessler’s account of the three months he spent working on NASA’s Phoenix Mars mission. A writer and creative director, Kessler was the first non-scientist/engineer to be included as an integral contributor to such an event.  The timely event takes place a few days before what will be the largest Mars landing to date.

The signing will begin at 3 p.m.  powerHouse Arena is located at 37 Main Street in DUMBO.
