Thursday, April 16, 2009 is rocket science

Nick is graduating with a masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs next month, which is an amazing enough accomplishment alone, but check this out:
  • He received straight A's throughout the entire degree, even with a newborn baby at home
  • He was named "Outstanding MS Graduate" (in other words, #1 in his  class)
  • He defended his thesis, "A General Perturbations Guidance Scheme for Electrodynamic Tethers with Libration Effects", (???), a couple weeks ago and it will soon be published
  • More good news career-wise coming soon
I would post a cute picture of Nick in his cap and gown, but he refuses to attend the potentially boring graduation ceremony (I don't blame him).  Congratulations, Nick!

  1. I'm pretty sure you just made up that title of his thesis :) Those aren't real words. But all seriousness aside, that's pretty awesome! You guys are going to be real people now!
