So tonight I saw a rocket launch. I just love seeing them, they are such a work of art and engineering.
A symphony of diverse parts, pieces, and people coming together at the right time and place to achieve something grand. Whether they launch supplies, satellites, or people- rockets are needed to keep our life as we know it going. How amazing to be a part of that!
One of my really cool rocket scientist colleagues has a great non profit program for teens to engage in high altitude launches, you can check it out here http://www.rocketmavericks.com
