| | I give talks on a sm
I give talks on a small niche of the already proloy understood field of astronautics. I gave some talks in recent years where I was worried I'd made them too basic and patronizing. People thanked me. Explaining orbits is enough work. Explaining Lagrange orbits even more so. Explaining how a solar sail can change a Lagrange orbit is a whole other story. Nice 3D rendered pictures of the scenario, few to no words, plain English explanations using the pictures, and daring to go too basic from my perspective made all the difference. I've heard it called the curse of knowledge of our own work that we need to get over.Yeah, posters are different, because they need to tell the story in your absence.
