Reaching for Mars – My Latest Scholastic News Kids Press Corps Article!

8 Jul

Check out my latest Scholastic News Kid Press Corps article about the RS-25 rocket engine and America’s planned mission to Mars!

Here – is the opening: “What does it take to get humans to Mars? First, you need a rocket engine that can propel a 77-ton vehicle 142 million miles. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is nearing completion of that engine.”

CLICK HERE to go the Scholastic Kid Press Corps Notebook and read the rest of the article!

NASA engineers conduct a successful test-firing of the RS-25 rocket engine earlier this year at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.
