Hey Sarria,

Question. Do you know of the Mars Direct approach proposed by Zubrin and the Mars society?

These photos are stunning. Thanks for sharing your fascinating journey to space! I often share your photos with students in my science class.
My family & I are looking forward to viewing the night launch in November. We'll be driving up to see it from Stuart.

Sidd,
Yes, I have kept up with the Chandrayaan mission. So very exciting!!


Sohaib,
I had not heard of the Mars Direct approach until you mentioned it. After reading a little bit about it, the design plans sound awesome. Looks like there are still some revisions going on, which would be expected, but it will be very exciting once the mission plans are finalized.

Damaris, You site is very inspiring. I applied to the astronaut program last December. NASA has always been a part of me. I'm working in Seattle, but worked near the George C. Marshall Center for about five years. If I get hired great. If I don't I'll still enjoy watching NASA on the moon in twenty years. This my goal in life! Because of the NASA channel, I did enjoy my ground school courses, my new hand-held oscilloscope, and all the other things that came my via the NASA channel. Wouldn't it be nice if we were both selected.
