SpaceX makes history

“When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor.”

Elon Musk

I’m posting this for two reasons. First, my last employer in Sacramento before I came back to Ireland was Elon Musk, and his two South African cousins. Elon is the SpaceX CEO so I’m kinda proud of that. I was on a team responsible for mobilizing the world’s first and only vertically integrated sustainable energy company–Solarcity which became Tesla.

The astronauts arrived at the  launch site in a Tesla car.

Second, these are hard times. I want to show something positive and pure about America, my second home and a country that gave me citizenship, wonderful relationships and gifts.

This is what we can do when we work together.

Before this historic achievement today the only way for astronauts to reach the International Space Station was through Soyuz. NASA was paying Russia more than 90 million per seat for rides to the agency for the last nine years.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
