Out of confinement once again! And I’m still healthy, good for the people around me. I was excited to see how the place I will be spending most of my time, looks like. It’s really cool! Being surrounded by space art like pictures, sculptures, books, and past prototypes definitely create a motivating environment. I’ll take notes on that for whenever I try to set up an office for myself.
First day, all suited up (just like in New York). I got a ride from my house to the office, even if I live just a few blocks away, that’s nice from my boss. After all the explanations of the office operations I was introduced to some technical detail about the current mission we are working on. Again, interesting and ambitious. Let’s not forget I got to know the most important codes, the bathroom code, and the WiFi password.
During this week I had to process a lot of new information, including the grand architecture. Which is a little more complicated than I thought but seems very reasonable once you connect all the threads. Even after countless science fiction shows, this field still feels totally unknown for my way of thinking. I have to be honest, I’m still a little skeptical if some of the details of this project are really viable to develop and I would like someone with advanced space physics knowledge to verify it. But I also think it is worth the effort to work on the concept. It can change many things in the space industry and, actually be relevant for the human species.
One of the main projects I’m assigned to work on is the smart-wiki. First, It will be an internal tool to manage and sort information, but it can possibly be an income source in the future. I have to build it from scratch and I was already recommended a language and framework. More things to learn!
I feel comfortable enough to start working hard but my brain is still a little lazy, I have to eat better, get used to a new schedule, and organize my tasks to improve my performance. Let’s see how I do next week.
