To Mars!

NASA had a successful test flight with the spacecraft Orion today. The craft they plan to use to send a manned mission to Mars sometime in the 2030’s.

It’s so exciting to me that space exploration is getting such interest again. If we want to live among the stars, our first step is to live on our own neighbor. To think that I might even live to see it happen makes me feel both incredibly lucky, and a bit jealous of the kids being born today who will live to see so much more than me.

As we all work together to stretch our reach and do the so called impossible, it is a reminder of what explorers we always have been, and always will be. The universe is there for the taking, and I’m glad to see us finally reaching out again.

I look forward to watching this next chapter in the story of humanity unfold!
