A small, forward-looking company has offered to share the wealth of Mars with Titusville.

4Frontiers Corp. is asking the Titusville City Council to allow more than $745,000 in tax breaks to help the company attract investors and set up a shop where it would provide Earth-bound folks with a taste of the Martian experience.

“We consider ourselves the world authority on Mars settlements,” said Mark Homnick, a 50-year-old former mechanical engineer, who graduated from Penn State in 1980 and works out of his New Port Richey home.
