Mars Perseverance Rover

On February 18, 2021 Perseverance NASA’s Mars rover landed on Mars!

On July 30, NASA launched the Mars Perseverance rover on a seven-month journey to the Red Planet. After landing in Jezero Crater, the robotic astrobiologist and scientist will search for signs that microbes might have lived on Mars long ago, collect soil samples to be returned to Earth on a future mission and pave the way for human exploration beyond the Moon. Perseverance will be accompanied by a helicopter called Ingenuity, the first attempt at powered flight on another world.

Goddard Exhibit to Welcome 2021

Visit MASM’s new exhibit on Robert H. Goddard, featuring a model of his 1926 rocket.
Dr. Robert Hutchings Goddard (1882-1945) is considered the father of modern rocket propulsion. Born in Worcester, Massachusetts, Goddard was an American engineer, professor, physicist, and inventor who is credited with creating and building the world’s first liquid-fueled rocket.
On March 16, 1926, Robert Goddard successfully launched the first liquid-fueled rocket in Auburn, Massachusetts. The first of-its-kind rocket reached an altitude of 41 feet, lasted 2 seconds and averaged about 60 miles per hour.
Goddard’s work as both theorist and engineer anticipated many of the developments that were to make spaceflight possible. He has been called the man who ushered in the Space Age.

Friends of Flying Santa

Friends of Flying Santa, Inc. was formed in 1997 to help ensure the future of the annual Christmas flights to New England’s USCG units and lighthouses. The aerial visits of Flying Santa to lighthouses and lifesaving stations have been a New England tradition since 1929. Capt. William Wincapaw of Friendship, Maine – an aviation pioneer – began the flights as a gesture of recognition to the dedicated lighthouse keepers and their families as well as the crews of the lifesaving stations. Capt. Wincapaw and his son, Bill, Jr., continued the flights for close to two decades. The father and son team eventually recruited legendary author and historian Edward Rowe Snow to assist them with their expanding list of lights and boat stations. After Capt. Wincapaw’s passing in 1947, the mantle was passed to Mr. Snow, who faithfully carried on the tradition for over four decades. With the help of his wife Anna-Myrle and their daughter, Dolly, the isolated residents of lighthouses throughout North America continued to receive visits from the “aerial St. Nick”.
