My good friend Dave Doody is teaching his awesome space class again at
Art Center College of Design beginning May 14. His class is really
great and gives a good overview of everything from the environment in
the solar system to reference systems to get around the solar system, on
to gravity, spacecraft trajectories, flight missions and operations.
Everyone is 6 degrees from a JPL flight mission. You are either working
on one, or you know someone on a mission or you'd like to work on one
someday. Dave's class is a great start for the enthusiast to the advocate!
Dave's class takes place on seven Thursday evenings beginning May 14.
It's a great way for everyone to get a good overview about space
flight: You night see me there!
