Hello again! Thank you for returning to the VSDC Blog. In a continuation of this week’s discussion about space, VSDC’s Entrepreneur in Residence, David Perkins, leads our experts on a discussion about everything from oribital mechanics to hardening components against space radiation to solar flares, and how the data we gain in space impacts the way we live here on earth.
Joining David again this week are:
Dr. William Edmondson, who has spent the last 14 years performing research in the area of small satellites with a focus on communications computing systems engineering, and technology development for SWARMS.
Dr. Kimberly Scott, Co-founder and VP of data science at Astraea, a geospatial analytics startup in the commonwealth of VA and who has an extensive background in space and space data, specifically studying galaxies and the fundamental nature of the universe.
And Dr. Bob Ash, a distinguished professor at ODU with an extensive background in space and physics, including space systems engineering, marsh exploration, and extraterrestrial resources.
