Space, LinkedIn and Inspiration.
I was so excited when I got selected to work for NASA at the rocket launching station in Cape Canaveral. This happened in 2006 through Oracle Consulting Services. I cannot say more words or better things about it: I simply love that place. I used to take all my relatives, friends and cousins whenever they wanted to go to visit the NASA Kennedy Space Center. You'll never catch me missing an opportunity to go! Even though I have gone several times and the center is about 50 miles away, I never get tired. I can see 100 times again and again –no problem!
This is a place for true nature and exploration. You rarely get to see all those ... and SPACE is truly interesting. We never know what's really out there, all the materials, rocks ... How does it all really look? The Space Center is truly a great place for great science and facts.
Completely unrelated to my love for space and science, I was recently contacted by Susan "Susy" Jackson from LinkedIn to participate in a SpaceX project. I'm not sure why she choose me to reach out to. I am still shocked! There are 100s and 1,000s of people in LinkedIn, but she chose to email me and give me a chance to record a video responding to: "Elon Musk and SpaceX plans to fly humans around the moon. Would you go?" Not only did I get to record for this project, but she also chose my video to feature on LinkedIn Editors' Picks Slide Share post. Wow!
I still think about where I came from – an Asian Indian sub-continent – and how I got to where I am today ... all is inspirational – I talk about it a lot for motivational speaking and what not.
My wish is that one day I can participate and be a part of SpaceX through Elon Musk’s program. I really admire him. He sold his entire 401k to build an empire. I wish him great and he is lucky to run such a great organization.
I am extremely happy to be part of this program and honored to be featured in LinkedIn.
