Thank you.  There is a whole saga to go with the creation of it, but not for public consumption. You can reach me through the root page if you are curious.

ALL I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW

Dave--very interesting.   Star Trek was "THE" program for future engineers when I was growing up and going through school.  We knew that with the proper educational background, work ethic and resourcefulness, any problem could be solved.   As you mentioned, all of this was created with individuals of varying ethnic backgrounds.  This is one thing Gene Roddenberry demanded from the scripts--diversity.  I also enjoyed the fact that he used individuals with differing skill sets in contributing to solutions. They all worked together.  (Wonder if any members of Congress ever watched the program.)

Asking yourself the simple question, “Is this a strength problem or a stiffness problem?” can prevent many design mistakes.
In November, a European space probe will try to land on the surface of a comet moving at about 84,000 mph and rotating with a period of 12.7 hours. Many factors make positioning the probe for the landing an engineering challenge.
Mistakes in power distributions are not all that common, but they do exist. We look at some of these mistakes and disaster scenarios with the intention being to inform readers to be wary of repeating such mistakes when designing their power distribution system.
What do gears, bearings, and shafts have in common? For one thing, they're often made out of steel. For another, they're subject to a failure mode known as rolling contact fatigue.
