Thank you! So do I. In fact, I think I'm going to wear it to work again (but in London this time) this week. :)
Given that I am relatively newly introduced to your blog I find myself in need of exclaiming: spacecraft engineer! By your shirt, would it be fair to assume are working on the Solar Orbiter project? Having worked on solar weather physics (well, still working, but am in the middle of a pause before the summer), I am waiting with bated breath for the launch :).
Rivet af, indeed!
P.S. I love flying at night. That is a gorgeous picture of London! I don't think I have seen any night pictures of it before, hmmm.
P.P.S. It's great that you do outreach as well — people need to see themselves represented in a field to be able to easily imagine themselves there some day too.
I don't personally work on Solar Orbiter*, but the lab I work in built the magnetometer. The flight model was recently delivered (woo hoo!).
* Apart from a small amount of product assurance stuff
I LOVE your purple tights and Doc's, well I like the entire outfit. By the way you are very pretty.
The first time I saw a murmuring was at our farm in Oregon adjacent to 450 acres of grapes. I was mesmerized when several hundred starling's took flight and landed in a couple of our giant ancient oak trees. I miss watching that.
Thank you on both counts!
That sounds fantastic. The biggest murmuration I ever saw was in Sicily. We were driving back to Palermo at sunset from the south of the island for our flight home and there were these huge swirling black clouds over us the whole way.
You are absolutely one of the coolest people on the planet. And you look terrific! LOVE the "engineer" dress and the pic of you at sunset. Gorgeous.
Aw, thank you! I enjoyed the trip, busy as it was. Was pretty tired this weekend, though. ;)
Oh squid that's a full on week! Glad to see the little guy is looking better.
Awesome outfit. :D
It was! Yes, he's definitely recovered from the tummy bug now, although he seems to have gone into a bout of teething this week, poor lad. Hopefully he can catch a break soon.
That is a hefty schedule and you look so cool all the time. I get jet lag leaving the postcode!
I adore the installation of the moonboot footprint, is it permanent? That is the kind of thing I would remember as a child.
Ha, I was looking pretty rumpled by the time I got to Heathrow on Thursday night. No selfies of that! :P
Yes, the footprint is permanent. There are astronaut handprints nearby, too.
That dress <3
(I'm so super sorry I missed you :( At some point this series of colds that plague me this winter will go. It has to ...)
Hee. Thank you.
(I hope you can kick the colds soon. It sounds like your immune system could use a break.)
