Dodging the Roadkill: Dear Mr. Truck Driver

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Don’t be misled by the title of this post. I’m not about to start “bashing” truck drivers.

First of all, I appreciate what you do. This country can’t do anything without you. You spend long hours behind the wheel, many days away from your family, and you get no respect.

You drive HUGE machines all over this country and have to deal with all the idiots out there. Trust me, I’m a biker, I know a thing or two about all the idiots out there.

When I started this journey, I quickly noticed that EVERYBODY on the road, and I mean, EVERYBODY, is distracted. The cell phone will kill us all.

Origami inspires NASA Engineers to unique spacecraft designs

 

Written by Andrew Good
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – An ancient art form has taken on new shape at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Origami, the Japanese tradition of paper-folding, has inspired a number of unique spacecraft designs here. It’s little wonder that it fascinates NASA engineers: origami can seem deceptively simple, hiding complex math within its creases.

Besides aesthetic beauty, it addresses a persistent problem faced by JPL engineers: how do you pack the greatest amount of spacecraft into the smallest volume possible?
