|« Happy Birthday!||39 weeks, 2 days »|
Kelly said I should write a post. I reluctantly agreed, even though I prefer to take our readers for granted. All three of you. For granted.
Work has been crazy busy. I've got a software bug that I can't get to the bottom of. I know what you're thinking - "Man, that is insanely exciting! I wish Lucas would write more about software." To that I say, be careful what you ask for. Work really has been busy, in all phases.
Today, I was in our lab with some co-workers and heard that the lunar rover was driving around the quad in front of the building. I went out there and snapped some photos with my never-reliable T-Mobile phone. It honestly took over 1 hour for the phone to send the images to my album online. Ugh. So, now I'm going lazy on your behinds and just slapping the photos in here with no effort made toward aesthetics.
It looks like you guys just melted a Prius and the Millenium Falcon together. Is that all you guys do at NAFTA?
Awe. Some. Is that really the real rover like they’re going to send to the moon? Looks like working at NAMBLA is a fun job.
Dad wants to know if it has a windshield wiper!
So…what exactly DO you do? I mean, really. I’m facinated that you would have the opportunity to photograph such a thing. Please share.
AND - it appears you have FOUR readers, as there are currently FOUR comments. Keep up the software…uh, stuff…and maybe you’ll add another??? Just a thought.
1. It’s a concept vehicle. I probably should have mentioned that. Here is a link about driving the vehicle in the desert: http://www.nasa.gov/directorates/esmd/home/black_point.html
2. There are no windshield wipers.
3. I don’t work with the lunar rover at all. I work in software integration for a lunar landing simulation.
4. FOUR READERS?! I have ratcheted up my ego accordingly.
