Mars landing engineer is Jaime Escalante's former student

Decades before leading a team of more than 100 engineers responsible for The Perseverance rover that landed on Mars this week, East L.A. native Sergio Valdez was a student of none other than Jaime Escalante at Garfield High. In case you're too young to remember or so old you forgot, Escalante was such a bad-ass math teacher that they made a movie about him in the '80s called Stand and Deliver. — Read the rest

SpaceX Rocket Crashes During Drone Ship Landing -- Again

After four delayed attempts, Elon Musk's Space Exploration Technologies Corp., or SpaceX, launched its Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on Friday, successfully deploying a communications satellite into orbit. But, as the company had warned may happen, the attempt to land the 14-story rocket booster on a drone ship at sea ended much as did three previous tries: in flames. Rocket landed hard on the droneship. Didn't expect this one to work (v hot reentry), but next flight has a g...
