Hi all,


Many apologies if you wanted to come and see me perform on Saturday at the Analog Ladies event in SF. As most of you probably know already if you read my previous post, I’m about hald way through my notice period as I leave NASA and go to work at Google. One of my projects, a space camera for the SOAREX-9 spacecraft, is running late so I need to work through the weekend so I can deliver it in time for launch. It’s not my fault it’s late, but launch deadlines are what they are, so needs must.


I can say with absolute truthfulness that I will not miss this kind of last minute crazy, but a part of me will miss it forever.

Hi folks,


NASA Edge (part of NASA Public Affairs, I think, I’m not certain) has released a rather cool photo of the Resource Prospector rover busy doing its stuff at Johnson Space Center as part of the RP15 rover tests. As some of you already know, I designed a camera that looks out of the bottom at the soil below, right at the point where a drill impacts the surface and pulls up material from below.


It’s often frustrating not being able to freely share details of what I do, but for once this picture is fair game, so have at!
