Good point, Bill. I, too, am wondering where the accompanying excitement has gone. As Louis points out, these are amazing feats of engineering. Maybe we need to send modern day counterparts of John Glenn, Scott Carpenter, Gus Grissom and Alan Shepard up there to generate some excitement.

Here is a link to an olderarticle I worked on back in 2010 about how the Mars Rover's spectrum analyzer used advanced motion control to collect and analyze samples:

Gosh this is exciting. But with all of the funding to support STEM education, I'm wondering where to find all of the excitement surrounding this ongoing mission to Mars. I was too young to make any observations during the Apollo missions. Maybe instead of complaining about Beyonce and Adele, folks like me were complaining about all of the attention our culture was showering over The Beatles and Elvis while we were flying to the moon...

I don't doubt the findings (well, maybe a little), but it does remind me of the movie Caprcorn One, where they faked the trip to the moon.

The trend to automation development software emphasizing configurable objects, versus structured programming, takes a step forward.
Everyone working in MEMS is chasing the ever-elusive golden wafer. But there is a moral to this story, and help is on the way.
Despite pervasive emphasis on “faster, sooner, better,” companies that have multiple design cycles a year only update their approved vendor lists on an annual basis. Maybe it's time to rethink this.
Taking energy from renewable sources, recycling existing energy, and using components that don’t need much energy at all are becoming critical industrial and consumer design criteria.
