I’ve been away. I’m back. Poland was tremendous. Work is pressing, but then, I’m lucky to be doing original mathematics research with such great people.
For now, I just wanted to share this awe-inspiring (and quite large) infographic for those of us with our eyes turned towards the heavens:
I had to pass this along because it’s going to be a reality in 3 short years: the vehicle that will be used for the next manned spaceflight. Did you know that no human has traveled beyond low-Earth orbit since Apollo 17, the final mission in NASA’s famed moon program, returned home in December 1972? 1972 — 42 years ago.
It’s time we both get back in the saddle.
Oh, did I mention, this is the kind of applied math that I plan to do? I want to work in aerospace research. I can’t think of a better job to have.
