Rocket Boosters!!!


I might be more than a little excited about this job.

The are part of an installation, sponsored by NASA and JPL, going to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, on the National Mall in Washington DC. They are stands for a semi hemispherical immersive video display. There are 4 units to the installation and each will show different geological and astrological data according to the sponsor's wishes.

ImeanthefrikkenSmithholycrapsonianairand******spac emuseum!

It's only like the best museum in the world.

I mean some of my work, of all peoples, will live in the same house as The Columbia. My mind is blown.

In these pics I have 2 together, facing each other. Each unit is a little less than 180.

Re: Rocket Boosters!!!


Yeah, I'm taking the family next year.

The guy Im working for would let me come help install, but I have family obligations.

Too bad, hes told me about some great behind the scenes impromptu tours that hes been given.
