L-14! (“L” as in “Launch”!) If @nasa’s Mars InSight Lander isn’t yet on your radar, you have 2 weeks to get excited about this highly-anticipated (and first-ever!) interplanetary launch from the West Coast! I’ll be at Vandenberg Air Force Base, 30th Space Wing, to witness this historic launch in person(!) on May 5. In the meantime, if you’re in SF, catch the Mars InSight Roadshow at the @exploratorium through Sunday, April 22. And watch this space + my Twitter account for updates from the launch site as liftoff approaches.
