Been there--well Goddard Space Flight Center mission control anyway--done that, never, ever want to go through it again.

For anyone planning to blindfold me and surprise me for my birthday, think again. 😂

Lots of interesting insights for developers, those hiring, and those that want to be hired.

Ride along in a B-29 Superfortress

Listening to all the checklists they had to go through in this piece of wartime history is something else. And the coordination for them compared to a lot of the single pilot flying I often see just adds to that complication.

Slept like a baby last night, and woke up to see this replay of a flawless launch from +SpaceX​ at 2am EDT. No Falcon 9 landing attempt on this one because they needed all the fuel to get a heavy satellite all the way up to geostationary orbit, and it was delayed a few times due to high winds. The hosted webcast starts about 12 minutes into the video if you want to fast forward.
