Like a true multi-mission goon, I have made a made a move to the other side of the fence — the Mars Science Laboratory side of the fence! A job opening came along to help out the Cruise sequencing team, a team that is, incidentally, made up of almost all University of Colorado folks and almost all former MER folks. Should be a blast.
MSL now owns half of my working time for the near future. Fortunately, I was able to do some bartering: I get to keep most of my time half-time commitment to MER as a TAP/SIE.
So don't worry — blog posts will keep coming! I won't be leaving MER if I can ever help it.
(Speaking of, here's a promise: "A Day In the Life" update coming later tonight!)
