As we explained in our last post, the word Intergalactic has many meanings for us, and one of those meanings includes the "out-of-this-world" quality we are aiming for with our soon-to-be-published children's books.
With that "intergalactic" goal fresh in our mind, it was definitely an inspiration to see this quote from Michelangelo when we looked at an email from Lifehack this morning:
"The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; But in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark."
And, fittingly enough, as we contemplated setting our own aims high, we had the thrill of watching Mission Control at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory as NASA's InSight lander prepared to touch down on Mars. Such a wonderfully ambitious mission!
After nearly six months of traveling through space, Mission Control prepared for InSight's landing. Would all their hard work and planning pay off?
We watched and waited with them until...
cheers erupted! Scientists hugged and danced. Insight had landed safely.
Thank goodness NASA aimed high!
