IBS. Bad week, I guess.

 IBS: Your body’s way of saying: “What’s that, you ENJOY food?
How about now?”

Elisha Otis’s Elevator Patent Drawing, 01/15/1861.
Item From: Records of the Patent and Trademark Office. (1849-1925).
Patent Spotlight. Elisha Graves Otis was the founder of the Otis Elevator Company. While living in Yonkers, New York, he invented a safety device that prevented elevators from falling when their hosting  cable failed. He also is famous for a safety elevator demonstration he did at the New York Crystal Palace during the 1854 New York World’s Fair. To the crowd’s consternation, he had the rope holding his platform severed by an axeman… only to fall a few inches before safely coming to a halt.

Fatima Dyczynski passed away in MH17 bombing
Fatima Dyczynski was the founder of Xoterra Space and a fellow student of mine at the space systems engineering departement of Delft University of Technology. I did not know Fatima personally, but it was clear to all she was an ambitious woman with a bright future ahead. Her mission was to make a difference and make space personal.
Fatima was flying to Perth to meet her parents and take on a job at IBM. My thought and condolences go out to her family and friends. I wish them strength in these terrible days.

In honor of Fatima the faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology (DUT) have established a prize for Msc.  students at DUT. The prize aims to encourage space innovation and entrepreneurship.

The most reliable way to predict the future is to create it.
you don't have to be so negative just because a post doesn't have a person of colour in it.

I have absolutely no clue what this message is about… apparently, it’s about “a post”. Well, I have several thousand of those. So I guess get back to me on that and we can discuss my negative attitude.
