Can you live on Mars?

Hey past students, just in case you come by…

Over the summer I read the book The Martian by Andy Weir, I couldn’t put it down. Here’s a link to an infographic about How We’ll Live on Mars – interesting facts!

 

The movie will be released on Oct. 2nd, and the best part, I believe, is how realistic Andy Weir (the author) was in his depiction of how to live on Mars…here are a few articles:

One from CBC News, one from Comic Book Resources, and one from The Verge  (and how a NASA astronaut recommends it!)

Here’s one of the trailers:

Happy Summer! Watch this!

I hope you’re enjoying your time off! My past 8th graders, enjoy your rest before high school begins! My past 7th graders, I hope I may see some of you as Advanced Technology students…and maybe some of you will be in the Yearbook class.

In 2014, a  science series called Cosmos: A Spacetime Odessey will begin, this trailer looks great! It was originally a series hosted by Carl Sagan in 1980 (and he passed away in 1996), and has been revived by Mr. Sagan’s widow and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy). It will be hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, my favorite astrophysicist!

 

“I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”
