From Deep Sea to Space Lecture with John Bouvier

March 1, 7:30 p.m.

The Southampton Town Councilman—who played a role in recovering a Mercury space capsule that was lost in the crushing depths of the South Atlantic Ocean—shares stories of his incredible career path, from saturation diver to deep ocean engineer to NASA robotics engineer, in a special talk sponsored by Montauk Observatory and Stony Brook University’s Department of Marine & Atmospheric Sciences.

Bouvier will also discuss technology used on the International Space Station (and the training astronauts require to use it), as well as how deep sea divers, submersibles and robotics​ are now being used by the Department of Defense and the Office of Naval Research. The event is free and requires no registration.
