When the Perseverance landed on Mars, I watched it from work so I only did a quiet little happy dance.
Do you know who did NOT do a quiet little happy dance?
Alejandro Miguel San Martin- Alejandro has been a NASA engineer for over 35 years.
This is his FIFTH Mars landing.
I could watch him loving this moment in time over and over again.
I’ve posted the original video shot by his daughter because I like the little bio that she included.
The next time we land something on Mars let’s go hang out with Alejandro. I think we will have a blast.
Alejandro Miguel San Martin, the chief engineer of four previous Mars landings had no choice but to turn his daughter’s childhood bedroom into a makeshift control room to monitor the NASA Perseverance landing.
