Rocket Science is Pretty Cool

Some of you know that besides nurturing and promoting Business Playce, I have a “real” job. As the co-owner of Arbotek Inc, I provide engineering sales and support to government agencies and OEMs from Virginia through New Jersey. One of my larger customers is NASA, yeah the NASA that makes rockets, satellites, etc..

In any case about 2 years ago I started working on a project with NASA called ELC (Express Logistics Carrier). It’s basically a chassis that is bolted outside of the Space Station that allows experiments and other “things” to remain outside of the Space Station but to get power and data to and from the interior of the station.

On Monday I got the following email from NASA. Pretty cool and thought I’d share.
