Grrr, I have a wailing and gnashing of teeth underway as I am missing the opportunity to meet and work with this amazing Engineer in a few weeks in San Francisco. I am not part of our team travelling to be there.
My elder daughter and I have started watching all sort of cool geeky stuff on YouTube at night. It was Chris Hadfield* this evening. Tomorrow I think it needs to be Simone.
* She was fascinated by the whole life on the space station thing. And I have been asked three times to explain why everything floats in space. Its great when you can stimulate curiosity like that**
** The one complaint – she was amazed when she saw a female astronaut. I need to beat that submissive attitude out of her.
I hope you pointed out that why people float in space (lack of gravity) is different from why they float in the space station (free falling with style)!
