Imagine standing on Mars

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to stand on Mars? Now you don’t have to thanks to this month’s featured Argonaut, the Curiosity Rover.

NASA has created an image from Mars unlike anything you’ve seen. It’s a 360-degree virtual panorama that you can control. Just click and grab to look all around, and make sure you are using the full-screen, HD option.

Pictured is the “Namib Dune” which may be as close as I will ever get to Mars to standing on Mars.

Scott’s name lands on Mars

Aboard the Perseverance is my name, “Scott Stoll,” engraved on a silicon chip. Does that make me an astronaut? Are dreams written in stone — or silicon? Can Martians read?

Spot the International Space Station

Here is an easy backyard adventure that I have done 3 times already. You can easily spot the International Space Station flying overhead. It looks a lot like a fast airplane except that’s a lot higher and traveling thousands of miles an hour.
