    Magnificent machines.

    I'm often awed and amazed at the ingenuity of mankind as expressed in the machinery we create.
    Using nothing more than the materials available at hand, and knowledge of physics and mathematics mankind creates some awesome machines.

    Maybe it should be in the Space News thread, but here is Envisat, one of the satellites that I helped to design and build (just a wee part - the antenna system sticking up at the top).



    This one is ERS-1, I worked on both ERS-1 and ERS-2 programmes.



    Quite how I moved from being a successful 'rocket scientist' to living in the middle of a rubber tree plantation in Thailand escapes me...
