A funny list, Akin's Laws of Spacecraft Design

My dad showed this to me yesterday and I thought it was hilarious,

My favorite law is:

"To design a spacecraft right takes an infinite amount of effort. This is why it's a good idea to design them to operate when some things are wrong"

I'm a Star Wars fan too! That quote made me think of the Millennium Falcon, which turns out to be your profile pic :)

Tragically, an important part of our worldview has just been crushed. Light speed travel might look more boring.

My favorite one was "A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan next week." Good read.

• Half of everything you hear in a classroom is crap. Education is figuring out which half is which.
This one is my favorite.

I bet designing a spacecraft is a little more stressful, harder to test, and trouble shoot than an airplane, or a shoe etc...
