Space, Asteroids, Software

Something that involves the three has done more than grab my attention.

If you didn't already know, I'm a massive nerd and spend most of my time reading about anything and everything or watching doccumentaries. What ever I'm doing it always comes down to science, and I can't get enough of it. I love all things science, but after seeing on the news the new developments in a field of science that I have thought about, discussed and been excited for.

The prospect of mining earth rare materials from asteroids. In Space.

I'm serious, Planetary Resources plan to launch themselves further along their pursuit of knowledge and resource, near 2015. But what does this have to do with me? Well after reading a lot into the project and into the company, which is a public sector one at that, i've found out there are jobs available for Primary Flight Software and Ground Software engineer. Amazing, it's a dream. I know, but what a job that would be.

I even went to the extent of sending them a cheeky email for some advice. Whether or not i get a reply is debatable, but i haven't been excited like this for a potential career path to attempt in a while. Time to get my head into some books and excite myself some more.
