This week, we had a lot of aerospace-related schedules. On Monday, the company took a day off for Memorial Day. On Tuesday, LiftPort got bigger by finishing Fabio's Self-quarantine. As you all know, the historic launch of SPACE X was scheduled on Wednesday. Unfortunately, it was postponed until Saturday. NASA's Competitive Program Webinar was on Thursday. Finally, Space Force Drama was launched on Netflix. Please wait a little longer. I'll tell you everything.
Fabio went to work for the first time on Tuesday after he finished Self-quarantine. We greeted each other warmly and shared our daily lives lightly. Fabio is working on creating a software tool by participating in the SmartWiki project. I'm summarizing and organizing a lot of articles that are based on the program and uploading them to the database.
Space X's Crew Dragon spacecraft was scheduled to launch on Wednesday, May 27. Although all of the LiftPort employees were waiting for the countdown to launch the spacecraft, we had to wait for the next time. The countdown suddenly stopped with about 20 minutes left, and the announcer announced that the launch was delayed on Saturday. Fortunately, I think it's a relief that the launch was canceled due to the weather, not because of technical problems. I'm looking forward to launching a manned spacecraft that works with Space X and NASA. I hope the launch will be successful on Saturday and recorded as a historic day. If the launch is successful, it will have a huge impact on LiftPort. There could be an advantageous situation to reduce the cost of launching satellites and to consider options from several companies. I looked my head off searching at hundreds of articles about this launch but I'm going to have to watch it for three more days because the launch has been delayed.
On Thursday, we attended the Payload Contest Webinar hosted by NASA's Tournament Lab. I'd like to give you a brief introduction to the contest: design payload that's up to 100mm x 100mm x 50mm in size for the lunar probe. The total prize money is $160,000 and the prize money varies according to the ranking. In fact, we participated in this Webinar with interest in the exterior of the luggage, not the inside of the luggage, or the box. These days, Michael is reading a book about containers and transportation history, and with the knowledge he gained from the book, he is considering whether to participate in a project on baggage design. I thought the box was so small that it would be good to use a balloon-like or expandable material. It's because when the size gets bigger, it stands out better and you can put more in the box.
This week, all the schedules were in the aerospace field. So I want to call this week Space Week. After work, I will watch Space Force drama and leave a review on my blog next week. Everyone, we have Space X launch left on Saturday. Let's all cheer for a successful launch.
