I came by the Akin's laws for spacecraft design and they inspired me greatly. I also love sci-fi concept design and I had the opportunity to create a mix of two awesome things into something I hope readers will like. Share and keep the dream alive!

10 ways spacecrafts teach better design

  1. 10 THINGSTO LEARN FROMSPACESHIPSAND THEIR DESIGN
  2. ENGINEERING IS DONE WITHANALYSIS WITHOUT NUMBERS IS ONLY AN OPINION
  3. THE NECESSARY NUMBER OF ITERATIONS ISONE MORE THAN YOU HAVE CURRENTLY DONE
  4. YOUR BEST DESIGN EFFORTSWILL INEVITABLYWIND UP BEING USELESSIN THE FINAL DESIGN LEARN TO LIVE WITH THEDISAPPOINTMENT
  5. NOT HAVING ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED IS NEVER AN EXCUSEFOR NOT STARTING THE ANALYSIS
  6. THERE IS NEVER A SINGLESOLUTION THOUGH THERE ARE ALWAYS MULTIPLEWRONG ONES
  7. WHEN IN DOUBT, ESTIMATE IN AN EMERGENCY, GUESS AND RE T O GO BACK BUT BE SU MESS WHE N THE THE CLEAN UP S COME AL ONG. BER REAL NUM
  8. A BAD DESIGN WITH A GOOD PRESENTATION IS DOOMED EVENTUALLYA GOOD DESIGN WITH A BAD PRESENTATION IS DOOMED IMMEDIATELY
  9. THE ABILITY TO IMPROVE A DESIGN OCCURS PRIMARILY AT THE INTERFACES. THIS IS ALSO THE PRIME LOCATION FOR SCREWING IT UP.
  10. PAST EXPERIENCE ISEXCELLENT FOR PROVIDING A REALITY CHECK. TOO MUCH REALITY CAN DOOM AN OTHERWISE WORTHWHILE DESIGN, THOUGH.
  11. THE FACT THAT AN ANALYSISAPPEARS IN PRINTHAS NO RELATIONSHIP TO THE LIKELIHOOD OF ITS BEING CORRECT.
  12. THE ODDS ARE GREATLY AGAINST YOU BEING IMMENSELY SMARTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE IN THE FIELD.IF YOUR ANALYSIS SAYS YOUR TERMINALVELOCITY IS TWICE THE SPEED OF LIGHT, YOU MAY HAVE INVENTED WARP DRIVE, BUT THE CHANCES ARE A LOT BETTER THAT YOUVE SCREWED UP.
  13. ALL THE IMAGES IN THIS PRESENTATIONARE COPYRIGHTED BY THEIR CREATORS AND ARE FROM A GREAT SITE CALLED CONCEPT SHIPS http://conceptships.blogspot.com GO VISIT THEM!
  14. THE DESIGN RULES ARE A COLLECTION OF “LAWS”FROM ACTUAL SPACECRAFT DESIGNERS, WHO DESIGNTHINGS FOR THE MOST INTENSE AND DANGEROUS OF ENVIRONMENTS - A CLIENT CALLED SPACE. AKIN’S LAWS OF SPACECRAFT DESIGN http://bit.ly/akinslaws
