I'm Going to Mars!

 Click to Launch!
Click to Launch!

Okay, my name is at least. For those of you that get my Facebook feed you know that I am always posting links to NASA, JPL, and other space information. I love...LOVE, astronomy and space flight and anything having to do with the stars.

I even force my unwitting daughters to camp out in the yard with me to watch the Perseids and other sky spectacles.  Here we are during the Lunar Eclipse in April...

Selfie Level: Astronomy Geek!

So it is no wonder I'd be all giddy over this new project over at NASA where you can get a boarding pass and send your name along on ORION'S FLIGHT TEST on Dec. 4-6, 2014.

You should check out the site because it is a science geeks dream. There are maps to track national and global participation and other goodies like info on Mars, 3D structural graphics, and links to watch the launch LIVE online. SQUEE!

One of the best things about being a writer is using your imagination and creativity to give life to the daydreams of your childhood years.  Space and all the wonder, danger, and adventure it promises has never been more real to me as an author and avid reader.

I hope you take the time to explore some of what's out there and maybe catch a seat next to me on ORION.

So cool. At one time I wanted to be an astronomer. Even studied physics in college. But, alas, life got in the way...
