Awesome Stuff

I’m just your average girl who wants to go to the Moon, doing everything I can to make that happen.

I’m also interested in keeping our orbital space a junk free zone, or rather, getting it to that state and then keeping it that way.

I’m an Aerospace Engineer, University of Florida graduate, who loves figuring out how stuff works, and problem solving, while usually creating a few new ones in the process.

I’d like to see more women in the engineering and science fields.

I’m a big fan of people who do stuff themselves. I find some of the creative talent on YouTube to be very inspirational. I prefer to work with smaller companies or individuals who have a real sense of caring about the output they produce, which is often (but not always) lost with big corporations.

I love to travel. I like realizing, and seeing that what I call ‘normal life’ is not even close to resembling what ‘normal life’ is for other human beings just like me, who happen to be born on another piece of land on the globe.

Everything affects everything. If you’re not looking at the whole picture, you’re not really seeing what’s going on. And that’s pretty (but not totally) impossible to do.

Right and wrong are indeed in the eye of the beholder.

Nothing is absolute, there is always something to be done to change things.

Logic is only a recognized repetitive pattern, which can be used to anticipate future events. It only works as a predictor as long as the constraints that cause that original pattern to form are held in place. There is no intrinsic ‘rightness’ factor to logic itself.

I’m very interested in keeping our planet alive and healthy. That means finding ways to harness the energy sources that seem to replenish themselves i.e. the sun, moving water, moving air, and all other sources that don’t produce toxic compounds which throw off the balance of the eco system we live in. It means changing the way we live, getting rid of the notion that consumerism is the way to be. It is of utmost importance that we get back to building things to last, not designing in imminent failure. If the computers on the Space Shuttle were designed and built the same way that our desktops, laptops, digital cameras or cells phones are today, the shuttle wouldn’t have lived past its first year! We know how to do this, we have the technology, it’s just that the cycle of purchasing and throwing stuff out became such a financial driver that the design goals changed. We need to change that back.

Science is everything. It is the study of the world around us, the knowledge we gain from learning how the building blocks work, and finding new tools to use on those building blocks, allow us to shape the world we live in, in ways that suit our needs.

I got certified on the fork truck
There’s a whole lot more to me than that, but it’s a good start!
