Back in the Saddle Again

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:

The SLS is derived from proven technology used for decades in      America’s moon program and the space shuttle.

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.
