OK, he’s not actually a rocket scientist, but my brother-in-law, Dave, does works as an electrical engineer for NASA Glenn Research Center and the clip above shows 3 news reports on a SCAN testbed, that he helped design, and that is being sent to the International Space Station on a Japanese rocket as I write.

The SCAN testbed will be bolted on to the side of the Space Station so that they can run tests on the equipment and make sure everthing is operational so that it can be used in future space exploration.

Unfortunately, we don’t get to see Dave interviewed in the clips but we do get to see the equipment that he helped develop for NASA.  Pretty cool!  I’m very proud of him.
