RE: Rocket Science – an Australian 90’s band or a colloquial term for a significant and often misunderstood branch of engineering?
As one of the world’s leading “rocket scientists” I engineer rockets. Some of them are big, some of them are small. But basically they’re rockets. They go up and they come back down again.
I studied for 32 years at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leicester. It was only in my 31st year that they let me set off a firework (under supervision due to stability problems – mine).
Well it’s my turn now and those that were suppressing my rocket skills are laughing on the other side of their face(s) – mainly due to a serious accident with one of my rockets.
But my question is this. When someone mentions “Rocket Science” do you think of eminent scientists such as myself or the Australian rock band formed in 1998? Please ensure your answer is well reasoned as we’d hate to have another “accident”.
