Looking into the control room. JPL engineers claim that the round object at the bottom is “the Center of the Universe.” (JPL humor.)

Visiting the hangar for “Maggie” the Mars rover that stays on Earth. Maggie’s job is to help engineers trouble-shoot problems when they occur on the rovers that are actually on Mars.

We just got through security, yay! And now time for a group photo. From left-to-right we have Marlon Orta (graduated 2016), Marvin Alonzo (also graduated 2016), [?], Bao Yi Lei, myself, Carlos Arroyo, Isaac Ramirez, Christian Ramirez, Ms Nicole Guillen (English Teacher) and John Shaw (JPL). We are in front of the administration building.

The wheels of the rover. Notice how the treads of the wheel will write a message on the surface of Mars. I’ll let you decode the message.

We are visiting the “Mars Yard” where the Mars rovers are tested before blasting off to the red planet. (Prior to this we visited the indoor test area for the rovers.)
