I’m a bit of a science and space nerd so its pretty cool to live this close to NASA. Especially when I see reports about the sweet toys they get to play with. This time around when they sent a rover to Mars they included a helicopter style drone that they are remotely flying from here on Earth. It seems obvious that they would be controlling it from Earth, but when you think about it its an astonishing thing. They are going to fly a remote control helicopter around Mars from millions of miles away! That’s freakin’ nuts.
So for all the kids still in school thinking about what they want to do when they grow up, remember that NASA and the military have the coolest toys.
