STEM: Watch This Short TED Talk Video to Learn What it Takes to Launch the FIREBall Telescope

University of Arizona astronomer Professor Erika Hamden (also see her personal web site here) leads a team involved with launching the FIREBall telescope to help her and her team learn how stars are created. Failure is not an option, even though it happens….you learn from your mistakes, you get back up, and try and try again. I know. Gotta love STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). Erika will try to launch FIREBall again in 2020.



I grabbed the featured picture from the TED Talk. But it is also on Erika’s personal web site.

Geek On!
