Orion blew my mind…

Orion brain blown
Following a 3am wake up call and a middle-of-the-night drive to our rendezvous point near Cape Canaveral, I had the massive pleasure and privilege to watch Orion launch on its first test flight as a NASA guest. It was pretty awesome!

Thanks to Trajectory & GNC Flight Analyst Caley Burke, Chief Technology Officer Deborah Diaz and Open Innovation Program Manager Beth Beck for hosting us so brilliantly.

As well as the awe-inducement of watching my first rocket launch I spent time in San Francisco with the excellent Matt Haines of tech company Electric Imp, hooked up with our patron Tim Peake in Houston where I also met with the wonderful team at NASA’s Human Research Program who will be contributing to our big project for this year – The Astro Challenge.

All in all, an excellent trip.
