My View For Awhile: Jezero Crater

My View For Awhile… well… this one might have to be postponed for a while.

I’ve signed up with NASA for some news and links for the upcoming launch of PERSEVERANCE and the little Martian chopper INGENUITY.

The way I see it, when I get to Mars in 2026, and everything goes sidewise because of a really big green stripe rearranging storm, and I have to make a trek to Jezero Crater to find the rover so I can establish contact with Earth again, I’ll have a slight advantage.

And, by the way, Google Mars really sucks.  No help at all, right now.

BTW, when the new Space Force is inaugurated, I’ll be ready both with aspergillum and with whatever else they set me up with. These certificates should go into my CV right away.

It was a trick getting these, I can tell you, given that the Space Shuttle doesn’t fly anymore.  And we won’t tell anyone about that whole clerics not bearing arms in uniform thing.  Shhhh.

For those of you who want more on the references, I highly recommend Andy Weir’s book The Martian – US HERE – UK HERE – and the movie made from it US HERE – UK HERE.  It has kept my attention multiple times and I find it inspiring.

    You should check with your travel agent…I’m not sure that launch date matches with a Hohmann transfer orbit!

    I hope you live to be 105 or 106….that should give you the opportunity to meet Zefferin Cochran.
