AOS y'all!

I’m Laz, an aerospace engineer in LA who pretends to be a lizard or shark online.

I’m a big polyam-queer who loves talking to folks about science, co-hosting a science webcast on YouTube, building rockets in my garage, backpacking, camping, climbing tall mountains, overlanding my Jeep, nice shoes, and nice mohawks.

Always happy to chat with folks so hit me up!

COVID, e-begging 

One of my bf's coworkers has self-reported COVID symptoms. I'm disabled (ASD, OCD, PTSD, etc) and have asthma and a terrible immune system, and he's our only income earner.

There's a good chance we might have been infected if this kid actually is tested positive, most of my bf's coworkers think this is a hoax and don't bother with hygiene. We might lose our income and need to get tested ourselves soon.

If you have the means to help, we're needing it.

Really enjoyable Game 1 of the World Series last night. Not _just_ because the Dodgers won, but even though Tampa dropped 8 runs it felt like they were playing well. It just so happened that the Dodgers were playing better.

space show, self-promotion, science! 

Hey! Stop what you're doing right now! TMRO:News is out! Ryan Caton gives us a busy SpaceX update chock full of Starlink and Starship goodies. Dr. Tamitha Skov gives us a busy Sun in this week's Space Weather. I cover the new Artemis Accords, Roscosmos grievances and International Space Station systems issues, launches from China and a new crew to the ISS, and wrap it up with a suborbital scrubbing selfie Bonanza of stories. youtu.be/eOTpJZOlhXE

Finally, for some reason Toot! hasn’t been working all day.

body stuff, make me a robot already 

Once discussed this with a coworker.

Coworker: But is it you? When you're uploaded into the computer is human you no longer you since you're in a new place, with a new consciousness? Can it be you? Is it even you? Are you you then? Do you become a new you and the old you ceases to exist? Does your conscious chain of existence cease and a new, completely fresh existence of yourself arise? Can robot you really be you?

[10s of silence]

Me: I don't fuckin' care.

That's not saying I would never accept the offer. Frankly, I can't be let out of this bag of meats suspended in syrups and put into a proper chassis fast enough.

The sinus alone makes this highly desirable.

And no, DO NOT let anything made by 420Submarine "The diver is a pedo" Boy be a part of this.

"Why's it so old? Why's it not the glass cockpit?"

Well, being born in 1988, and no one has really allowed me to install upgraded avionics inside my head...

body stuff 

My body when swallowing a 200mg pill: All good, we're fine here.

My body when swallowing a 600mg pill: We're opening up, clear to take it, come on down.

My body when swallowing a 18mg pill: WHAT IS THIS FULL ABORT CLOSE THE THROAT CLOSE THE THROAT PRESS TO UPCHUCK

$1 bet the big reveal is "actually doing something"

It's 0156 and just want to let you all know titanium is some wild shit.

Current work project: leading a team helping to get the world's first Space Shuttle fully-restored and properly exhibited to the public.

It was built in 1972 by North American Aviation as a design-engineering-integration mockup, and used till 1999 to check design changes and payload fits.

B&W photos is from 1972, the rest are my own photos from when I worked on it in 2012-2013 before it was put back into storage.
