boys out there. Maybe they'll be inspired, study science more and decide to eventually come to Rensselaer," she said, referring to her own scientific beginnings. Originally from Arizona, Leshin has been interested in space since the NASA Viking program in the 1970s. She has taken this passion all the way to Antarctica where she has searched for meteorites.
The multi billion dollar programming of planetary discovery is under serious threat of budget cuts, she said. "At the pinnacle of our achievement, the future of asking the big scientific questions is in jeopardy," she continued. "We could lose our technological capabilities, leadership as a nation, and some of what it means to be an American, to discover new things."
"It's like a baby right now. When the rover is doing Under Armour Micro G Speed Swift Men's Running Shoes things there, we're up over here," said Leshin.
Over the next decade, if funding remains intact, the planetary science program wants to bring Mars rocks back to Earth and explore an ocean moon of Jupiter.
Leshin, who already had a rock fragment from Mars in her office, now has a photograph of she and her colleagues celebrating just minutes after the recent landing on its door.
Laurie Leshin, who joined Rensselaer in late 2011, said she and the 200 other members of the science team were excited, nervous, but in the end, very proud of what they accomplished with another successful rover landing. is still the only country that has accomplished this feat.
Millions of people around the world watched as the Mars Rover, Curiosity, landed on the Red Planet. And the dean of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's School of Science, as former deputy associate administrator of exploration at NASA, was one of the lucky few to witness the monumental event at NASA's Planetary Science program in California. As a result, RPI students will now have the chance to study the data Curiosity collects.
In Earth time, the Curiosity landed early Monday morning; on the Red Planet it was afternoon. Mars, Leshin explained, has a day timeline that is a half hour longer than Earth's. The rover, equipped with about 10 scientific instruments, cameras, 3D imaging and video, is currently in the bottom of a crater about five miles from the base of a mountain. The plan is for the rover to take about one year to get to the foot of the mountain, which will have rock layer samples from the planet.

RPI chemistry, physics, Earth science and geology students will have the opportunity to gain credited research experience while studying the rover's data. "It's part of the learning experience. We're blurring the line between academics and research," said Leshin, who is also planning to give upcoming talks about the space project. The college is also organizing a Curiosity program to take place at EMPAC this fall.
She described the $2.5 billion project as a good investment which has created many high tech jobs that have produced the cutting edge Under Armour Shoes For Girls Kids
rover about 8 months to make it to the neighboring planet. Now it will be drilling and grinding rocks and making other scientific stops, and sending the data back to NASA for review and study.
"We'll see ten times more in data and other important information from the Curiosity," said Leshin, who will be heading back to California's Jet Propulsion Laboratory this Friday to continue studying the initial information sent from the rover.
The mission of this rover, which weighs one ton and is the size of a Mini Cooper, is "all about habitability," she explained. During the next two years, scientists will use the data Curiosity collects to determine whether Mars has ever been or is currently habitable.
They did not have much time to celebrate, however, since the crew had to get right to work with analyzing data being sent from the rover, the largest and most capable of the three sent to Mars thus far.
