Dr. Geoffrey Landis, who I raved about a few weeks ago, was just announced as a visiting lecturer (I think the official title is "Ronald E. McNair-NASA
Visiting Professor in Aeronautics") at MIT for the upcoming academic year! How crazy is that? Maybe I can take a class or seminar from him, because he's so totally rad. Anyway, I'll ask him about what he'll be teaching at MIT when we interview him next week.
Oh yeah, he's also the principal investigator on the Robotic Exploration of Venus project. So...maybe now I have two new heroes.
