J VanDomelen Do you think you could do everything, and I mean everything, in bed for 70 days? If so, NASA wants to hear from you. You cannot get up for any reason for 70 days. You can read, watch television, catch up on e-mail, or even play video games, but you cannot get out of bed—not to eat, shower, or even use the restroom. So, if you can keep your head at a steady six-degree decline for 70 days straight, NASA … Read More

J VanDomelen The world economy has been in the doldrums—both stagnant and sluggish, by all accounts. In turn, military and aerospace (mil/aero) forecasts have indicated steady if not significant decline. Defense budgets have been reduced in the U.S. and U.K., but bolstered in other locales. Just this year, in fact, a wealth of countries—including, in no particular order, China, India, Iraq, Japan, Russia, and Saudi … Read More

J VanDomelen The United States and the Soviet Union were deeply embroiled in a space race. It was the U.S. vs. the U.S.S.R. when this military and aerospace (mil/aero) geek was a small, impressionable child (and a budding wannabe astronaut). The value of the space program and funding to NASA were seldom, if ever, questioned in those days. It was a matter of pride, patriotic, inspiring, and so on. Putting people … Read More
