For those of us who are practitioners as well as educators, the space industry has become a complex, sophisticated environment. In my case, it's been a wonderful journey seeing its evolution from basic science in the 1960s to consumer electronics in the 21st Century.
Having graduated in engineering in 1965, I feel I was provided with the basic tools to understand the science part. On the other hand, what makes space so special for me are the business opportunities that it delivers. This is why I think education has to be treated in a more comprehensive way.
