A Brief history of Airspace / Traffic control Design

#Aviation  
Think Los Angeles at rush hour is bad? Try doing it half-blindfolded with nothing but a radio and a few blinking lights to show you the way.

You've heard about the two #skydiving planes that crashed in mid air this weekend and everyone jumped to safety.

They were wearing video camera helmets.

Here's the video
The cameras strapped to the skydivers' helmets were supposed to memorialize their perfectly timed jumps and exhilarating descent from two small planes to the earth 12,000 feet below.

Short video clip of yesterday's Dnepr Cluster Launch from the Yasny launch site in Russia's Orenburg region. Which included South Africa's first nano satellite, ZACUBE 1 (yesterday named Tshepiso - Meaning ‘a Promise' in Tswana). 

This launch contained a record breaking 32 Satellites and a experimental avionics package (BPA 3), to test navigation equipment for aircraft and satellites, which remains attached to the upper stage of Dnepr.

Congratulations to all involved!
