This exhibit chronicles the journey from simplicity and solitude to eye witnesses of history self-charged with documentation.  This photography is the handiwork of local residents, not professional photographers, punctuated by official photography from SpaceX and NASA. The exhibit is curated by a local resident whose real job involves philanthropy, not professional museum curation.
So, this is our story, this is a chronicle of the history being made on SpaceX’s goal of placing humans on Mars, as told by us. What is it like to have a rocket land in your backyard?  Come see for yourself!
