Apologies for the late appearance of this and the next post, but the expansion of my mind during the conference caused it to short circuit. In addition I’ve been wondering how I could possibly describe the key note by Dr. Jeff Norris from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and provide a glimpse of just how awe […]
