The Dragon Eats the Sun
May 24, 2012Some members of Mars Science Lab's camera team from Malin Space Science Systems took a break from rover operations training at Jet Propulsion lab to view the solar eclipse from Santa Monica Beach. The dragon boat ride was arcing up trying to take a bite out of the sun as it set over the Pacific. When clouds blew in front of the sun, people were able to see the eclipse without solar filters.
The excitement is building! LightSail is counting down to our test launch, set for May 20—and you’re invited.
