A look at the far side of the Moon with Evadot

evadotIt is always fun to chat with Mike Doornbos – memories of some beers consumed together on the Isle of Man last October come immediately :-) -; and to be interviewed on Evadot is a great honour, especially if one is called “one of our favorite people in the world “ :-)

One of the why's we have been talking about The far side of the Moon with Puli Space is Kármán Tódor – for most of the readers known as Theodore von Kármán, an outstanding man. Just a quick list of some of his achievments here, cited from the Wikipedia article,

In 1944 he and others affiliated with GALCIT founded the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is now a Federally funded research and development center managed and operated by Caltech under a contract from NASA. In 1946 he became the first chairman of the Scientific Advisory Group which studied aeronautical technologies for the United States Army Air Forces. He also helped found AGARD, the NATO aerodynamics research oversight group (1951), the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences (1956), the International Academy of Astronautics (1960), and the Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics in Brussels (1956).

Not to forget the Kármán line, the edge of space, and the craters named after him – one on the far side of the Moon, and one on Mars.
