Museum of Science and Industry


Catch any of the Mars rover Curiosity’s landing over the past few weeks? Did you wonder why there were jars of peanuts all over mission control? You may not believe it, but our very own NASA has a whole list of traditions that they like to follow when launching things into space. From peanuts to beans, our space-loving scientists seem to be quite a funny bunch!
