NASA’s Journey to Mars

I forgot how old I was but I know I was in high school when I first heard that it’s possible for us Humans to live in Mars because they said they found oxygen in there. After hearning that news, I’ve been thinking about Earth and worrying so much that time. I had this thoughts (or heard it from the news or somewhere) of Earth being so crowded and polluted and that we have to abandon it and move to planet Mars. I was thinking to myself, all poor people like us will be left alone in Earth and rich people will be saved. I know it’s too much watching of movies but hey who knows?

So today I saw this post from my co-blogger and friend Ruby in facebook,  I intruigely clicked the link and saw this boarding pass to MARS! I was like “Whoa! Is it happening now?”  Did some readings first before I submit my family’s name to NASA. I made sure we are not signing up my entire family for “One way Ticket to Mars“.

So I learned about the ORION’s initial test flight (read more about ORION below) on December 4th, a 4.5-hour mission in orbit around Earth and eventually – to MARS. We might not be able to travel to Mars but our names will in the future!

And here is our BOARDING PASS….

This is just for fun and a good engagement to NASA’s missions. My kids will surely enjoy this while we track our name’s milage. If you want to be part of this, go to their website NASA’s JOURNEY TO MARS  and submit some information until October 31st.

About Orion

NASA’s Orion spacecraft is built to take humans farther than they’ve ever gone before. Orion will serve as the exploration vehicle that will carry the crew to space, provide emergency abort capability, sustain the crew during the space travel, and provide safe re-entry from deep space return velocities. Orion’s first flight test, designated Exploration Flight Test-1, will launch December 4 on a two-orbit, four-hour flight that will test many of the systems most critical to safety. Orion will launch atop a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 37. This test will evaluate launch and high speed re-entry systems such as avionics, attitude control, parachutes and the heat shield. In the future, Orion will launch on NASA’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System. More powerful than any rocket ever built, SLS will be capable of sending humans to deep space destinations such as an asteroid and eventually Mars. Exploration Mission-1 will be the first mission to integrate Orion and the Space Launch System.

iGotTech Magnetic Screen Door Review

I received a Magnetic Screen Door from iGotTech and I am pretty much amazed with it! I’ve been looking for this kind of product that we can use in our backdoor last summer. My kids always playing outside and I am always yelling from the top of my lungs everytime they go out or in and leave the door open!

I’m so glad I found this product! It’s very effective, my kids can always leave the door open now everytime they go out the backyard and play, I get to enjoy the cool weather from outside, no need to open the aircon or fan! I had a party last week and my guests can’t help but notice it and asking so many questions about it. Like where I got it from and how it’s being installed. They were so amazed with how it works, pass through it and it will automatically close itself. I even found them playing with it and made me laugh coz my kids and I did that too when we first install it.

Before: Without the Screen

Installing is easy. The package comes with velcro and some thumb tacks. I made sure the door frame is clean before sticking the velcro to it. At first I stick it way very far so I have to  remove the velcro again and stick it back to the proper place. I thought the velcro will ruin my door’s paint and velcro won’t stick anymore but to my surprise, nothing of those happened. It didn’t ruin the paint and stick back on perfectly! Now if it comes off (which didn’t happen yet for 3 weeks now) you can always use the thumb tacks. Then it’s time to put the screen which also has the other side of the velcro.

After: with Screen

(inside)

And that’s how it looks like after installing. Looks very nice and fits perfectly to our door! I didn’t put any tack yet coz I am hoping I won’t be needing any.  I am enjoying this product very much and I am probably gonna get another one for our garage door soon!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

iGotTech Sticky Suction Phone Holder Review


First of all I would love to brag about this new product I got from Amazon  – an iGotTech Sticky Suction Phone Holder! This is a one cool gadget!

IMG_5329

I always wanted to have something like this in our car. We have our own built in GPS but sometimes we still need to use our phone to navigate where were going since ours is not that updated and it’s very hard looking at cellphone while driving. Thanks to this product for it can hold our phone securely while our hands are busy on the steering wheel!
It’s very easy and effective to use but be sure to put it in a smooth and flat surface for this to stick well. We tried this in our dashboard but it won’t be able to stick there coz it’s textured. So what were doing is that we’re sticking it to our built in screen/monitor to hold our cellphone.
This is very useful little gadget coz aside from our car, we are also using it in the bathroom while listening to our favorite music and sometimes we are also using it in our charging station at home!
As for the the sticker, it’s really sticky that can hold either my iphone 4s or my husband’s iphone 5 securely. At first I thought it will leave a sticky mark in our cellphone but it didn’t. That is another thing I love about this product.
I am hoping the sticky part will last long though. It says I can always wash it with water incase it gets dirty and lose the stickiness so I am hoping for that ;) But over all, I am pretty satisfied with this gift and i am loving it and I am highly recommending it! It’s very affordable too!
