Like many Americans, my family has been sheltering in place due to the outbreak of Covid-19. Although we have provisioned well enough for our physical needs, there is the larger problem of managing the ongoing stress of isolation.

To this end, we have created a fiction that our home is a luxury space ship, the USS CosyTown, on route to colonize Mars.

To track our daily progress, I created a simple, no image file, pure CSS and vanilla JavaScript web app called Mission to Mars.

As nice as a toy as this is, this was primarily a learning excerise to better understand VSCode, npm, and newer CSS tricks (new, at least, to me).

While I am not ready to jump onboard the all JS/npm bandwagon yet, I am pleasantly surprised how nice the workflow is for simple web projects.
