Wow...its been a while!

Hello blog...wow, it seems I've been neglecting you lately...sheesh...sometimes I'm horrible at this stuff.

Well, lets see...there's so much stuff I could talk about since I last posted...

LIKE...

> LCROSS-NASA's lunar impacter...I'm sure you have all heard about this.

> Well to educate the next generation about NASA (oh, and fulfill my outreach hours, haha) I decided to volunteer in the Emerson library. In honor of the LCROSS mission I decided to talk about the moon, the mission, Ares and attempt to answer any questions these little munchkins could come up with. Wow...was I in for a shocker??!?!?!?! Here are some of the questions I got (keep in mind most of these kids were from kindergarten to 3rd grade)!

"Is the moon really made of cheese?"

"How was the Earth created?"

"Is the Ares rocket bigger than God?"

"Have you ever been to the moon Ms. Zuber?"

I'm not trying to be funny, these were actual legitimate questions asked by the kids I spoke to. Some were more difficult than others to answer....obviously.

> I will update everyone on my tin can Ares-I rocket for the next post!
