The Goldilocks project

Here’s a bit of crisp, concise, content-ful design from Frank. It’s exactly the kind of thing I was talking about (hoping for) over here. Super cool. (However, as a personal note: upon reflection, I think I do better work on Venus than on Earth.)

One comment

A great visual, and it got me thinking about orbits. Perihelion is the point of greatest distance from the sun (in the earth’s orbit), and aphelion the point of closest approach. If it feels like we’ve been particularly close to the sun this week, we have; aphelion was July 6 at noon.

According to the ever-helpful Wikipedia, the terms for closest and farthest orbital points change with respect to the body being orbited, although there’s a generic form (periapsis and apoapsis) as well. While project engagement will never be as regular as orbital mechanics, perhaps it is useful to identify your own moments of closest approach — knowing that after this, it will be time to pull back your involvement — and farthest distance — where you must circle back in, or else fly away.
