Thank yous

As far back as I can remember I have always dreamed of space. Working in the space industry, however, had a stayed a seemingly unattainable dream until attending the SmallSat Conference. Indeed, being able to meet people working at NASA, ESA, SpaceX and discuss in person has confirmed my determination to pursue a career in the space industry. It has also opened my eyes to the plethora of different careers to follow.

Imagine a place where you could talk about sending shoe box sized spacecrafts to Mars, talk about how much fun putting things like flash memories to stuff toys in radiation chambers is, talk about making satellites launched from a gun, talk your heart out about antennas and super capacitors and still be the most popular person in the room. That's SmallSat! It is the perfect 'geek asylum' where anyone in love with space systems feels perfectly at home.
