Shadow Dog Designs will be on Mars!



On March 4, 2016, Shadow Dog Designs and Seamus will have a seat on the next NASA mission to Mars, along with several other friends.  Well, actually, Shadow Dog Designs and Seamus will be riding on a computer chip along with many other names on the robotic InSight lander.  InSight stands for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport.  It is a geophyiscal lander that will study Mars' deep interior to try to answer questions about planetary formation and evolution.


Here is my boarding pass:



And Seamus the Shadow Dog has a seat, too:
