Fatima Dyczynski passed away in MH17 bombing
Fatima Dyczynski was the founder of Xoterra Space and a fellow student of mine at the space systems engineering departement of Delft University of Technology. I did not know Fatima personally, but it was clear to all she was an ambitious woman with a bright future ahead. Her mission was to make a difference and make space personal.
Fatima was flying to Perth to meet her parents and take on a job at IBM. My thought and condolences go out to her family and friends. I wish them strength in these terrible days.

In honor of Fatima the faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology (DUT) have established a prize for Msc.  students at DUT. The prize aims to encourage space innovation and entrepreneurship.

So we’re digging in this rock quarry in Wyoming - the ambient air temperature is in the mid-80’s (~29 c), but surrounded by high walls of white reflective rock make it feel as though you’re working in a kiln. It’s incredibly dry and on a daily basis somebody gets a spontaneous nosebleed. Tom and I both had issues with the heat, constant sun exposure and the quick altitude change - Chicago is at 675 feet, our dig site was between 7,500-8,000. The dig came at the end of 6 intense week of travel and events for me. I was pretty worn down by the time we started filming, to say the least. 
And I actually took some time to consider putting on a light sweater when I realized I’d be leaning over our rock slab and facing the camera. I had to ask Tom to let me know if he thought the potential down-the-shirt shots were going to be a distraction. Do you know how ridiculous that is?
