Product Assurance Lead Engineer for major Space exploration project.


"I think a colony in space will take much longer than sci-fiction writers think. It costs $10,000 to put a pound of anything into near earth orbit. That is your weight in gold. It costs about $100,000 a pound to put you on the moon. And it costs $1,000,000 a pound to put you on Mars."
