Something out of this world

Several years back, when my youngest son, Tim, worked as an undergraduate at Los Alamos National Laboratory, he worked with his mentor, David Lawrence, and other associates, on a project called ChemCam. The ChemCam landed just yesterday as part of the Mars Curiosity Rover on the surface of Mars. So, a little bit of Tim's work is now on another planet!  How cool is that?!  Well done, Tim!  And "hurrah" for all the scientists who have made Curiosity a reality.  What an amazing thing!
