Now that I'm grown up, I still have that same love and passion for space. So much so that I trade off reading fiction and non-fiction that is either space or physics oriented. I'm very dedicated to it.
That being said, I have been following Mars Curiosity rover pretty closely. So much, in fact, that this "trailer" of the landing almost brought me to tears. I'm such a sap, I know.
This morning, I saw that there was a Google Hangout with part of the NASA team and they wanted user questions, so I just HAD to join. To be honest, I thought really hard about what question I wanted to ask. I might have even fretted slightly about it. Only slightly. Anyways! My question was the first fan question they asked and answered! I just about died! While I was helping a customer I heard my name and my question being asked. I may have flipped out a bit. And then was incredibly embarrassed and blushed profusely. My cheeks were hurting my smiling so much. My stomach is still in knots about it.
While I totally recommend you watching the entire video, if you fast forward to 7:19 you'll see my question and the awesome answer they gave.
I'm so excited!
Back to work with me now. I hope everyone is having a lovely and just plain awesome Friday!
