So I have been working non-stop for the past few weeks to get my Space Mission Design class ready for our final presentation tomorrow. It has been an extremely difficult journey and has given me extremely valuable insight into the process of mission design. There have been ups and downs but for the most part we had a great group working on this project. We give our CDR (Critical Design Review) and I am most pleased to announce that as a result of our hard work, an actual member of the SNSB (Swedish National Space Board) will be in attendance. Not only that, but our proposal has raised interest in the eyes of many people and we have submitted it to the SNSB for an actual review of our proposal. This is a great accomplishment and I for one am glad to be a part of it.
In other news, I have almost finished all of my classes for my master's studies and am now preparing to work on my thesis project. I will be doing data analysis of Cassini data on Saturn's moon, Titan. To think, I will be one of the first to explore new information on the edge of research into our own solar system. I am really excited and can't wait to get started. Below is a picture of Titan taken by Cassini in 2005. It is an extremely interesting environment and has lots of mysteries waiting to be explored.
Well, that is all I have time for at the moment. I still have a lot of prep for tomorrow. :)
