@Pubudu: Exactly and that is something which creates in-balance in the industry. You need to get skilled people at the right positions.

Very true a.saj. I also believe that, there are thousands of skilled and knowledgeable engineers and architectures in the world who has no chance to show their abilities.

Truly inspired article by the Max, I am also a space activity lover. It is very nice to hear that NASA is opening up to the public at least in this scale.

Those kind of activities will definitely help to the NASA tem which they will be able to hear to some fresh thoughts.

@Nancy: Yes that is the saddest part of it. When you have the technology to use it you do not have sufficient funds to invest on it.

Nancy,

Sounds like a good time for the family. Thanks, I keep McDonald Observatory in mind if we travel to Texas.

If you ever make it to Texas - a trip to Mcdonald Observatory would be an unforgettable experience for your family. They have frequent "star parties" - we have been to several at different times of year. The scenery in that part of the country is amazing and Big Bend is in the same geographic area which is a great camping destination (they have cabins too).

Nancy,

The visit to the observatory and seeing the cool tech used by astronomers sounds like a blast. My wife and I were trying to get our boys into space camp but the waiting list is quite long. Therefore, the alternative to camp was a trip to the space museum. We all had a good time!!!

mrdon, I always wanted to do the space camp in Huntsville

http://www.spacecamp.com/

but I tend to get vertigo and don't know if I could do it. We were very blessed to visit the McDonald Observatory at Fort Davis a few years ago. The director, Dr. David Lambert, invited our family to a late night of observation behind the scenes from the astronomer's work station. An evening we will never forget!

Nancy,

I agree. Space Technology is quite fascinating and does provide a lot of commmerical product influence. The Marshall Space and Rocket Museum here in Huntsville, AL is quite an impressive exhibit of the human spirit to explore new galaxies through engineering ingenuity.One of the exhibits at the museum that always pique my interest is the computers design and built for space navigation. All those little transistors perfoming complex calculations is quite an engineering marvel.
