Simulated The Post-Standard

Philip Turek, a 1980 graduate of Southern Cayuga High School, has been chosen by the Mars Society to participate on a simulated exploration of Mars in the Utah desert. Turek is a graduate of Cornell University and lives in Huntington Beach, California, where he is a teacher with a keen interest in outer space. He said his goal in applying for the simulated experience is to try to involve his students directly in the exploration of Mars.
