One of the best things about having a dad who is an aerospace engineer is how hilarious I find it whenever I tell him that something isn’t rocket science, like he wasn’t already acutely aware of that.


@SuzanEraslan my mom used to like to say "rocket science is easy, it's just projectile physics, maintaining and orbit is harder"

she's a satellite engineer, maintains the attitude and positioning of > 20 telecommunications satellites at a time

@maenad Literally the first time in my life someone has successfully one upped me in the "My parent is cooler than your parent" flex, and I respect that.
