    Part 1 of a 3 part series. Interesting to see what kind of radio gear is needed for this. Even more interesting are the ham radio folks who can do similar things experimentally using equipment at their home stations and slightly smaller dish antennae. . .

    Bigger isn’t necessarily better—at least where satellites are concerned. Modern “CubeSat” satellites are smaller and more numerous than ever. A satellite today can be a “hitchhiker,” aboard a larger mission, as the video below mentions. Or, a CubeSat can be launched from the International Space Station.

    Myths About Engineers

    Myth Buster Jamie Hyneman shares his thoughts about engineers and engineering.

    But there is one point I want to comment on: When talking about failure, Hyneman says this is a good thing.

    I agree with this, but failure can be a very bad thing if one does not learn from the mistakes. What went wrong? Why did something fail? What can be changed to fix the problem? How can the design, process or assembly or materials used be improved?

    Failures without diagnosis and further experimentation does nothing. It is the main reason designs or products continue to fail and not improve.

    What are your thoughts about engineers?
