Did you know Alpha has worked on multiple projects at Johnson Space Center? One of these projects is Building 21 (pictured below), the Human Health and Performance Laboratory. This facility houses the biomedical research team which supports astronaut health, safety and performance. This team will be integral to NASA’s future explorations, including creating technologies that will one day allow humans to travel to Mars!

Much of Texas has been blessed with a “cool” month of June, but this is still Texas so we all know it’s just a matter of time before those temperatures hit the triple digits. If you’re looking for some air conditioned fun, head over to Houston’s Tea and Victory for some old-fashioned board games! Grab a couple of your favorite people to play one, or a few, of their over 500 board games! You read that right, over FIVE HUNDRED. Have some friendly competition while enjoying some loose-leaf tea, locally roasted coffee, and unique treats.
