Tuesday (Week 5) My work is so Excel-arating

           Got to love Excel... It is making my job easier by doing much of the math for me, but it is still incredibly boring. I found a website that gives the solar wind speeds and particle data for any given time... EPIC WIN!!! This makes life so much easier!!! Now all I have to do is plug away at excel to find the drag factors for the corresponding solar wind and then factor in the orbit of Mars. Once this is complete (probably another day or two) we will begin the final step... Looking for a CME that will hit Mars using live feeds from the Sun. Almost there!!!   :)
