Hello Friends, Perseverance is the Mars project and a wonderful theme for us to use. We need to remember that COVID is almost over and our lockdown will soon come to an end. We have survived this long. Keep the faith! We are in the last stretch!!!
Enjoy the story of the first flight of the helicopter on Mars. Check out the links below.
I am excited for February because it means spring is on its way! What is your favourite way to celebrate spring? The newest Rover is about to land on Mars. NASA has sent a wonderful link and we can all use it to learn about the landing. January 27th marks Perseverance Rover as 22 days away from landing on Mars!
NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission is just 22 days from landing on the surface of Mars. The spacecraft has about 25.6 million miles (41.2 million kilometers) remaining in its 292.5-million-mile (470.8-million-kilometer) journey and is currently closing that distance at 1.6 miles per second (2.5 kilometers per second). Once at the top of the Red Planet’s atmosphere, an action-packed seven minutes of descent awaits – complete with temperatures equivalent to the surface of the Sun, a supersonic parachute inflation, and the first ever autonomous guided landing on Mars.
Only then can the rover – the biggest, heaviest, cleanest, and most sophisticated six-wheeled robotic geologist ever launched into space – search Jezero Crater for signs of ancient life and collect samples that will eventually be returned to Earth.
The illustration below shows the events that occur in the final minutes of the nearly seven-month journey that NASA’s Perseverance rover takes to Mars. Hundreds of critical events must execute perfectly and exactly on time for the rover to land on Mars safely on Feb. 18, 2021.
Check out this link it has many pictures of Jupiter and its storms.
Stress involves us all. Try to remember to be grateful for all we do have.
If you don’t take time for wellness, YOU will surely take time for illness!!!

December 21 – Great Conjunction of Jupiter & Saturn
Jupiter and Saturn have been getting mighty cozy in the sky – it’s been hard not to notice the two gas giants shining brightly near each other. Easily seen in the evenings in December.
Ursid (Big Dipper) Meteor Showers – any dark night, during December, in Laval- check them out in your backyard.
This is a great time to see how a telescope works. McGill university is presenting a YouTube video for us to see the great sky above. Join me Tuesday August 25th at 9:00 pm for a special LIVE presentation.
