NASA Mars Insight Lander Update

Headline NewsNASA’s next Mars spacecraft, the Insight Lander, has been shipped to the Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California for final preparations before launch in March 2016.

Before it was transported to California, technicians installed a microchip (the size of a small coin) containing 826,923 names of people who registered for a "Ticket to Mars". Nine of those tickets belong to our nine classes!
