So this past week, I had the opportunity of a lifetime students! I was able to see the MAVEN satellite launch on the Atlas V Rocket, launch to Mars. The awesomeness of this experience was basically indescribable! We were able to view the launch from about a mile away, while any closer we would have had a chance of damaging human tissues! Feeling the energy from the liftoff was such a memorable experience and I hope that each of you may someday get to witness something even as cool as this experience was for me! I will have lots to share in class about the MAVEN mission to Mars in the weeks to come! Stay tuned!
