BHM Family - good day.

I am SO pleased to announce that I have a new job, and so I am saying SO LONG, NASA!!!

I'm so tired of the government, so I have moved on to private industry where we don't have to worry about shut-downs LOL (half-joke).

I started working for the Constellation Program in 2006 on the Pad Abort-1 (PA-1) launch abort system program. The goal of this program was to create a safe egress (escape) system for astronauts/cosmonauts in the event of a launch vehicle failure. Basically, if the launch vehicle they were in was in danger of malfunctioning, they could safely jettison themselves away from the vehicle (in essence, we wanted to prevent situations like Columbia in 2003 from happening again).

We were scheduled to run to 2015 with 4 launches lined up - two pad abort launches, and two ascent abort launches. The first and ONLY launch we had was on May 6, 2010 and it was a resounding SUCCESS! (for those interested, you can search YouTube for PA-1 Launch White Sands Missile Range)

...but the Constellation program was still canceled, and most of us were filtered out to other programs or laid off Ouch

The cancellation of the program affected so many people that Kennedy Space Center had to work with the Florida unemployment department to create an entirely new initiative specifically for finding work for the displaced aerospace workers - over 10,000!

I now work on the MPCV (multi-purpose crew vehicle) integration program. Basically it is an extension of the Orion PA-1 program with integrating the crew module to the NASA Space Launch System.

BUT GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWNS GOT US SHOOK AGAIN Angry.

I started putting my resume out about two months ago to shop around and see what was in my area. 

Damn that. I'm moving on and up to something else where I won't have to worry what administration is holding Capitol Hill hostage Sleepy (half joke again).

Now I am working with electrostatics and composites. I'm thrilled. And I'm hungover from partying it up in celebration last night LOL.

So that's my good news. Hope you guys have been well Embarrassed

Who is coming to Miami Carnival? I'm jumping with - damn, I forgot the name of the band. PM me if you are coming. 

Happy be-lated to all the Virgos Hug
