Mission Possible


Published on

By 2040, NASA intends to send humans to Mars. Gifted students in our classrooms today are the scientists, engineers, pioneers, and innovators who will make that plan a reality, but they cannot accomplish this without motivation, determination and perseverance. These students must learn the skills that will enable them to take initiative, work autonomously, make decisions, and persevere in the face of obstacles to become the creative and independent producers that the future needs. Join us as we explore activities that support students in developing the strategies for awesomeness.

Twice as big in volume as the Earth, HD 40307g straddles the line between "Super-Earth" and "mini- Neptune" and scientists aren't sure if it has a rocky surface or one that's buried beneath thick layers of gas and ice. One thing is certain though: at eight time the Earth's mass, its gravitational pull is much, much stronger. Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech.
