As we noted in our recent post, one of the driving forces behind Puli Space is creativity. Besides the necessary - but not sufficient - creativity in engineering and science, we must be creative in many other areas, like internal organization, creating financing instruments, PR & Marketing, and motivation.
One of the driving forces behind Puli Space is creativity. Although we mostly depend on engineering and scientific creativity to get to the Moon, one of our fans has proven that expertise in artisanship has a place around the Puli too.
After the Team Summit I visited California and started to prepare Puli Space's presence in the US. As a first step, I gave a couple of talks in the Bay Area where I presented our competition - surely the most exciting race of our days! - and Team Puli's proud participation therein to California folks.
Going to space is risky. Already in the early phase of the development, still on Earth, many things can go wrong - and they go some time wrong, as all of us know this. But the possible consequences can be much more serious in space.
As it happened to Apollo 13, on its way to the Moon: "Houston, we've got a problem" - It is now history; today 43 years ago Apollo 13 splashed down succesfully with Jim Lovell, Frad Haise and "Jack" Swigert on board, after a really dramatic flight. Look back at this phantastic story here:
GLXP Team Summit was our meeting last week in Santiago - this is not only my opinion, but many colleagues I have talked to share this view.
One of the most exciting discussions we have encountered in Hungary was the one around the NASA recommendations how to approach the Apollo landing sites, and other lunar sites of interest. To take a close look at Apollo artefacts on the Moon is a great challenge. But such a challenge is not restricted to space: a year ago, Jeff Bezos - who does not know him?
Hungary’s Nr. 2 telecommunication company, Telenor Hungary, has agreed to sponsor Team Puli. To start with, the company supported us by providing several laptops & tablets and a couple of broadband internet connections.
