It all started in the summer of 2011. This is me at my first day working at NASA.
Yes, the NASA... the same people who landed a man on the moon in 1969, and the same people who today are planning a manned mission to mars.
But what most people don't realize about NASA is they not only do they explore space (the final frontier), but they also have an entire center that studies the Earth... pretty cool, huh?
Anyway, that's why I was at NASA ...
I was going to study the Earth.
Now you may be wondering why I would drive (yes, I drove) all the way across the country from California to Maryland for a job, but my reasoning was simple ...
NASA is freaking awesome!
Yes, it was hard work, but tackling creative and real-world problems was invigorating for me ...
