Man Meat Mondays: September 26th, 2011

It’s Monday, September 26th, and it was on this day in 1992 that NASA launched a $511 million probe to Mars. It failed after just 11 months, but don’t worry. It’s only money.

Know what else is money? Today’s hot and studly man meat muffin. He’s sooooooooo money.

Today’s Impressive People Factoids

As National Hispanic Heritage Month continues, many individuals are being recognized for their accomplishments. One of these is Ellen Ochoa, former astronaut and deputy director of flight crew operations at the Johnson Space Center.

A classical flutist and private pilot, she is co-inventor of three patented optical systems. Chosen as an astronaut in 1990, she logged almost a thousand hours in space on four shuttle missions. Dr. Ochoa has masters and doctorate degrees in electrical engineering.

In the U.S., there are 314,000 electrical and electronic engineers — more than 9 percent of them women and just over 5 percent Hispanic.
