So today a new Mars lander well landed on Mars. It’s call InSight and it’s on Mars to study things like the core, mantle, crust, and seismic activity of the planet. On board of it though is a small piece of our Province. A company out of Swift Current called MailleTec helped NASA by developing a shield that would help protect delicate seismic equipment from heat and dust. So pretty neat contribution to the world of science. I’ve always kind of liked when I see our province mentioned in things. It’s also not just behind the scenes things either where you’ll find our province. Most recently our province has been mention in a game review comparing it’s problems to a “wet Saskatchewan summer”. We also show up in other popular culture like little mentions in a book or tv show. It’s small mentions yes but it’s always fun to see us referenced. It’s like a nice reminder that not only are there other places that can be used in entertainment but also that the people of our province have journeyed far and wide and take part in all sorts of different projects.
