My latest article is online: "Rendezvous and Docking: A Guide for Non Rocket Scientists." If you want to see what I used to do for a living, check it out. (Don't forget to "Like" if you, y'know, like it.)

Baen Books just published my article on the history of NASA's Mission Operations Computer: a machine with the power of a modern wristwatch that enabled us to fly to the moon. I also describe how a newbie (me) could, with the press of a button, accidentally crash the entire Mission Control Center at a most inopportune time.

Spring weather observations from places I've lived:

Indiana: "Wow, what a beautiful day!"
Houston: "Hey, it's not quite as hot today!"
Seattle: "Well, at least it isn't raining."
