One year ago today was our first day in the dome. Today I spent the day with a couple of my crew mates wandering the Las Vegas strip and going to see The Martian (which in general we thought was great despite a few complaints about differences from the book and scientific/engineering inaccuracies). Yesterday we spent the day presenting to elementary school kids and parents about our mission, Mars and STEM. I’m so pleased with what joining HI-SEAS has gotten me. It’s been a great year.
