Do you have a relevant professional backgound?

Post by Nicki Mennekens »

More than the specific educational level of participants, it would perhaps also be interesting to be aware of their professional background. Therefore, the question is whether your current or future profession is somehow related to the mission.

I am a computer/software engineer. I want to see how the software works and if they can successfully serve out and step through all of the movies.

I'm a student trying to nail that B.Sc Nanotechnology. Nothing to do with dusting here.

Just interested in astronomy (and burn those buring hours when I'm fed up with my textbooks.)
Amazing how much interest specks of dust can spark

I,m a teacher and I teach digital photography, digital video editing, a course Digital Design and Imaging which includes Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator and basic animated gifs. Star gazing is a hobby. Can't see much in NJ, but we camp in the Catskills, great place to star gaze.

I guess I'm in league with the Devil.... uh, SunDevil that is- I have a computer and web development background but I am intrigued by all aspects of the project.

I guess my degree has nothing to do with this particular search, but I need to keep my mind open to other aspects of life.

I have operated mainframe computers for about 34 years. I have always had a love for science. At age six, after I got my first library card, the first book I ever checked out was on astronomy. I learned the names of the 9 known planets from that book. :)

I'm an IT-Consultant and Network Administrator. I've been interested in anything to do with space since I got my library card at the tender age of 5 and was really hooked the same year (1975) after watching the Apollo Soyuz docking on TV. So I guess this "qualifies" me to participate in a project like this :wink:
But last month I also started a Bachelors Degree (Distance Learning) in Geosciences at the Open University in the UK that can be directed towards Planetary Sciences. At the monment this is more of a hobby, but who knows.... :wink:
