Welcome to Spaceball Central!
About this site
Welcome to my idea playground. This is the place that I throw my ideas against the wall to see what sticks. Thought experiments, observations, opinion–all are coming from a brain (hopefully) that can’t stop thinking about the space industry. Some readers have found this interesting.
Select the “Lessons,””Opinion,” or “Region Focus” links located above the header. Space operations, strategy, orbits, government space mishandling–all of these topics are there for you to enjoy.
about The Mad Spaceball
Please understand: This is my very own blog that explores industry topics I think are worth exploring. What is on this site are my opinions and ideas only, not the opinions or ideas of any organization I work for. This site started out as an experiment. I wasn’t sure I’d have enough to write about. It turns out I do.
I’ve had the good luck to be involved a very small part of space operations. I enjoyed working on some very interesting space projects (missiles, satellite remote sensing) for nearly 16 years, first in the United States Air Force and then tests and projects in the Missile Defense Agency (yes, they have satellites! And Lasers!).
In case you’re wondering about the name: I’m mad (crazy) about space, and who doesn’t enjoy Mel Brooks?
