Rocket Science: Northwestern University reports it will launch a rocket today from White Sands in New Mexico: “As astronomer Carl Sagan famously said, ‘We are made of star stuff.‘ So to better understand ourselves, we must look out into the galaxy. …  A 10-year, NASA-funded project will culminate on Sunday, July 22, with the launch of the “Micro-X” rocket from White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico. Led by physicist Enectali Figueroa-Feliciano, the team has been at the military testing area to prepare for the launch.” Out into the purple haze?
