  • Have you ever experienced a shuttle launch in person? I can only imagine how it feels to have ridden in one, helped build one… of course it is sad to say goodbye to a vehicle and a program that accomplished so much.The shuttle program had to end though – in order to spark new innovations and get us to the next big milestone in space exploration. The shuttle program also has helped spin-off more than 100 technology companies and many of those companies were not aerospace related nor super complicated, a number of them sparked consumer products…
  • Besides the really cool website – NASA has spin-off a number of everyday products that you use at home and at work.
  • Cordless Vacuums are just one of the inventions that have come from NASA Zeno – consumer beauty product started out of NASA and Boeing partnership and went through HTC programSEAKR began between Goddard Space Flight Center and SBIR contracts. The company is a leader in SSR (solid-state recorder) technology and its systems help launch satelitte imaging systems, including Google Earth, that provide high resolution imagery for online mapping.CHI was started by a former nasa JSC scientist who conducted research on microencapsules that were developed in space and designed to deliver drugs to cancerous tumors. One out of every 3 cell phones today has a CMOS image sensor in it to miniaturize cameras – this was originally developed for cameras on spacecraft by a Jet Propulsion Team.
  • *Apple referenceInnovation is a form of change and what motivates us to get up and change something is a sense of discomfort – So you have to be made uncomfortable in order to motivate you to get up and do something about it And that is why I believe the ending of the space shuttle program will lead to a slew of new inventions and technology products in and around the aerospace industry. Find your passion and seek innovative new solutions everyday.
  • There are a lot of organizations out there – each with a mission and vision for space exploration and research. Some are political and some are special interest focused. http://spaceuphouston.orghttp://spaceup.orghttp://houstontech.orghttp://yurisnight.net/http://www.nss.org/http://www.spacetweepsociety.org/http://www.aiaa.org/
  • Space careers advance well beyond engineering and science (although those are great ones for aerospace-industry career paths also).Careers in space are as varied as on earth. Regardless of whether you work for NASA, for a Commercial Aerospace Company, or a non-aerospace company – the future of space exploration will involve all of us. Commercial manned space flights are already in the plans.
