Evolution of Spacecraft Design

A look at the evolution of cockpit and controls design over the last 45 years from Apollo to Discovery to Dragon V2.

If you make a product good enough, even though you live in the depths of the forest, the public will make a path to your door, says the philosopher. But if you want the public in sufficient numbers, you better construct a highway.

Lanyrd: from idea to exit - the story of our startup

It is not easy. It may well not be the right path for you. If you choose to do a startup make sure you know the risks and you are doing it for the right reasons.

Build something you care about.
Build something that makes peoples lives better. 
Build something that will motivate you against all odds.

Embrace serendipity. Grab all the opportunities you can, work harder than you have ever worked, make your own luck but do look after yourself first. Eat right, sleep decent hours and try to get as much of a work / life balance as you can.

- Natalie Downe

by Hartmut Esslinger, the founder of the legendary design firm Frog Design

Merge

In the end of 2012 I travelled to USA to experience something new. And it was something I didn’t expect: emptiness and density.

'Merge' is the last part of a project series 'Empty, Dense, Merge' which explores two opposite feelings through the photos of places located in USA.

In this project two opposite places are merged into one: New York City, where, it seems like, everyone wants to live there, and Grand Canyon / Death Valley, which are unlivable.
