Tech Tuesday

This is why I love science. As much as I love the new tech, and interesting designs, and fun bits of analysis, in the end, it’s the potential of that bleeding edge to upend everything we think we know.

Tech Tuesday 1/29/19 – Cool Sounds Edition

Overall, I support using drones and robots for aircraft inspections, as long as the software that is evaluating the sensor feed is more capable than a person at spotting an issue. I’ve done these kinds of inspections, on hovercraft and airliners, and it can be mind numbing.

Tech Tuesday – 12/18/18

On a personal note, we spent the weekend in Flagstaff, and Bug got to see Mars through a 16″ telescope, and he got to see the Orion Nebula through the Clark Telescope, which showed him 8 baby stars and the glowing green gas of the nebula.

Tech Tuesday – 9/17 – Asymptomatic Sick Kids Are A Nightmare Edition

Last week Bug developed hives all over his body. Misses school for the rest of the week. Freaked us out, because to date, he has no known allergies. Urgent care put him on Benadryl, which did nothing. Two days later, PCP puts him on Prednisone, which ended the hives, and spun him up so much we spent a day letting him run around the Arizona Science Center (nice place, BTW).
