Fw: Message Sent by Students to the Space Station

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Fellow engineers,
        As some of you may know, astronaut Bob Thirsk, now on the space station, is a graduate of University of Calgary where I also received an M.Eng. degree.  Students of the U of C engineering faculty decided to send him a message as may be seen on the linked YouTube Video.  I am forwarding this link to you in the hopes that some of you might also enjoy seeing it.

Dear Engineering Alumni,

As someone who was once an engineering student, you will be quite interested to see what the current students at the Schulich School of Engineering just did for another former student. Watch this two-minute YouTube video.

There are a couple of surprise elements. Enjoy. I hope this triggers fond memories of your student days here.


(P.S. The message to rally the students sent out by ESS is below. It provides some context for the motivation for this initiative).
