She Blinded Me With Science!!!

Who?  Which enchantrix of science could hold the Plush Team enthralled?  Why the Mars Rover, Curiosity! (And yes, she's a she.)  Our fall challenge was inspired by the recent achievements by scientists at NASA and the Jet Propulsion Labs.

The whole idea of leaving the planet is exciting. With the recent landing on Mars, it is possible that we humans may soon be walking the surface of Mars. Incredible.  So we put it to the Team:

Life on Mars (What do you think is living on Mars?)  
Weird Science (How the heck did we do this?) 
 Rocket (Wo)Man (Homage to all the scientists who inspired/designed/created made this happen!)

Next, we asked an expert on Mars to help us choose their favorite.  

Our expert, Richard C. Hoagland, is the New York Times Bestseller author of Dark Mission, The Secret History of Nasa. (  Mr. Hoagland worked as Curator of Astronomy and Space Science at the Springfield Science Museum, 1964–1967, and Assistant Director at the Gengras Science Center in West Hartford, Connecticut, 1967–1968. He was a Science Advisor to CBS News during the Apollo program, 1968–1971.
But now we need your help.  We want you to choose YOUR favorite.  Just click on one of the dials below the image that sends you into orbit!

We'll be posting his favorite choice as soon as you decide which is yours!  The deadline is November 22. So get picking!
