This is long in exposition, but it does discuss things in an interesting way.

This is an outstanding review of an incident in Massachusetts that should never have happened. The "Normalization of Deviance" is related to the the "Drift Into Failure".

This is what I did when I got to watch the Orion EFT launch. You should do it to! NASA is awesome! 
We’re hosting a #NASASocial on Dec. 3 at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Apply to attend and witness a cargo launch to the International Space Station! More information: http://go.nasa.gov/1WbdAee

This week we static fired the upgraded Falcon 9’s first stage for a planned 15 second test. This was the first test of the upgraded first stage with densified propellant, and we’ve now static fired both stages of the upgraded Falcon 9.

This was also the first time we utilized our new Falcon Booster Test Stand at our facilities in McGregor, TX.

+Matt Simmons and I share a passion for space, and when he told me that he followed up on that initial conversation at LISA and was interviewing at SpaceX, I was over the moon (hah) happy for him. When he told me he was actually getting an offer, I whooped and danced around, startling the person sitting next to me.

And now he's made an official blog post announcing that he's moving to LA and going to work for one of the most amazing companies in the world. I can finally share my happiness and excitement for him with everyone else, too.

Congratulations, Matt, you are embarking on a most excellent journey!

Met a legend, got an autograph, and wrote a blog about how Iron Man inspires me to be a better sysadmin. Not bad for a day's work.
