Friday (Week 4) TGIF!!!

            Ahhhh it's Friday at last!!! Dr. D is out today and Monday, however there is still work to be done. We have located a satellite (Poes) that can tell us when there are spikes is the ionosphere (AKA auroras). Now "all we have to do" is determine when they happen relative to when the flare hit the Goes satellite; with that we have two points of data for the same storm and therefore I can get far more exact with the drag factor. Then all we have to do is wait for a solar storm to head to Mars and this internship is done... it seems so close to end, but yet so far away...
