On November 5, we presented to the Shades of Blue (https://www.ourshadesofblue.org) & LPS Engineering Exploration workshop at Littleton High School. Shades of Blue has sponsored this for the past 11 years. The kids were amazing and we had a great time talking about spaceflight, Aphelion and sustainable, responsible space exploration.
I have been asked over the years about the inception of Aphelion and history since then. It’s been quite the journey and I thought I would write a blog post summarizing what we’ve done.
It probably seems obvious to everyone that one of the keys to the success of a new venture is effective communications among the founders. However, I suspect many people don’t fully grasp the entire scope of what that entails. While good work-related intra-office communication is essential for a company to not only operate but also grow, there is a much more fundamental type of communication that is equally vital for the founders.
