NASA's Curiosity Lands on Mars!

Sorry, I was too busy watching the Mars landing to think or blog about art tonight. The NASA rover, Curiosity, successfully landed on Mars just moments ago and I've been watching live!


Here's the NASA update:
Mars Curiosity

Why do I care?

Well, not only because it's making history, but because I've always had a love of astronomy. I have a love of all natural sciences, actually .... including those related to wildlife, of course!

But, truth be told, when I first attended community college at age 17, I planned to study astronomy. However, when I learned there were few career choices for astronomers ... much like art! ... even for those with a PhD, I was encouraged by parents and teachers to pursue a more "practical" career path.

Yeah, I did. I got my degree in Business Administration, and that career path died along with my soul there.

Haha! But it's never too late to start over. So, again, my paint brushes are fired up and ready to go! Will I make history with my art like Curiosity just made history? Who knows! But I'll have a lot more fun trying than I will in business admin!

Maybe one day humans will be the first wildlife on Mars.
