Apollo Moon Trees: To Space and Back

T-7 days until the first Artemis I launch attempt! Artemis will be carrying many special items around the Moon, but what I am most looking forward to are the tree seeds. The Office of STEM Engagement, which engages and educates students, educators and the public about science, technology, engineering and math at NASA, has selected different types of tree seeds to launch in the Orion module to soar through space for 42 days. But this is not the first time tree seeds have been sent around the Moon.

Florida Dreaming

Florida Dreaming

Florida is my family’s vacation spot of choice, like many Southerners. Florida’s weird, but it’s beautiful AND weird. I love it. If I wasn’t so attached to Texas, I’d move to Florida. (Side note: almost went to Florida for college.)

Moon Marks

Moon Marks

“Moon Marks” is a look at what people brought to and did on the Moon from 1969 to 1972: landers, rovers, science equipment, the astronauts themselves and the marks and even shadows that touched the Moon. With the possibility that humans will return to the Moon soon, it is important to examine how we interact with and change this celestial body with every probe, landing, test and step. Not only for scientific purposes, but also for historical and archaeological purposes.

Cryptid Sighting

Cryptid Sighting

I have always been interested in mythology and folklore, including cryptids, since I was a kid, but I’ve recently begun exploring it in-depth. Between that and my love of art bots, I finally came up with the idea for my first baby bot: Cryptid Sighting. It relays a #CryptidSighting or two every day. Sometimes it describes what the cryptid looks and acts like; sometimes it tells where it was last seen.

Endeavour

Endeavour

My video Endeavour has been out in the world since March, but was updated in July and gifed in August. This project is one of my favorites for a few reasons. One, it’s about space and NASA, so obviously it goes on the favs list. Two, I got to team up with my former roommate, Erin Stepp. She composed the music and asked me to make a video to accompany it during her senior recital at TCU. Three, it was a personal challenge in every way possible. The music is over nine minutes long – I had previously only done videos under four minutes. That’s a big jump in terms of editing. I also had to dust off my Photoshop skills for this new technique I wanted to check out.
