I had a busy, but, ultimately disappointing day.
I spent most of the day working on that lengthy powerpoint I’ve been talking about for the past several weeks. I need to have it finished by Thursday, and I’ve got a ways to go – it’s 15 hours of classroom time! I’m enjoying the process of creating it. So far as I know, this is the world’s first dedicated course on Space Elevators. I am very excited about crafting this module on the Lunar Space Elevator.
Naturally, I’ll share the document when I’m done. There’s talk about maybe turning this into a video lecture series. If that happens, I’ll let you know. (I have no control over that.)
But the part that was disappointing is different. Remember two weeks ago, I talked about Professor Lynette? I had asked her to lead a big project… Well she talked it over with her husband, and decided that she had to decline. She’ll still be on the Technical Advisory Council, but she simply can’t tackle/run the project I was hoping for. She asked me for a smaller task, one that is time-delimited so that it ended by October. She needs to be able to focus on her students. So, I’ll do that; I’ll develop a project for her unique skills.
But that still leave a big hole in my plans. I need to find a replacement for her, so that my larger plans continue on schedule.
So, that was my day. I’ll work on responding to more comments, and work on another post regarding the robot. Take care, mjl
