Thanks to Pablo Sobron and his company Impossible Sensing, there’s a piece of St. Louis on Mars, so to speak. Impossible Sensing created two data-gathering instruments for NASA’s Perseverance rover, which will try to figure out if there has ever been life on Mars. For us, it raises the question: “Is there a cooler place to work in St. Louis?”
