Rocket science. A term we all use to describe something incredibly difficult. And rightfully so. I mean just look at a rocket engine! Stare at it too long and your brain might melt. Trying to grasp all of the concepts involved in rocket science can be incredibly intimidating.
And yet rockets were designed and virtually perfected in an era when computers were the size of a room, and most calculations were done with paper, pencil and a slide rule.
My name’s Tim Dodd but I'm better known as the Everyday Astronaut. Recently I fell head over heals in love with spaceflight. My appreciation and curiosity for the subject grew into an obsession. Before you knew it, all I wanted to do was learn more and more. And the more I learned, the more I wanted to share what was making me so excited.
But as someone who dropped out of college and has no technical background or degree… I really felt unqualified for the job of explaining rocket science to anyone. But the fact of the matter is, if I can learn this stuff, anyone can.
But this isn’t just some basic surface level information we deal with here. We dive in deep, get into all of the nitty gritty details that engineers spend years going over. I’ll take you behind the scenes of the most exciting missions, get up close and personal with the coolest hardware, talk to the smartest people I can find, and break down incredibly complex topics, because quite honestly, it’s a lot of fun.
We’re living in exciting times where the pace of innovation is faster than we’ve ever seen. Where the cost of spaceflight is coming down by orders of magnitude. Where the people living today will explore new worlds amongst the stars.
The point is, rocket science is awesome, and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to be excited.
