Some days ago I found at’s forum a post from 1000 Planets Inc., indicating that they needed employees for this new space startup. After sending my resume, the CEO, Michael Laine, asked me for a report on the socio-political status at Latin America.

He was really impressed with my report, so he assigned me to one of the projects on Public Outreach. I will assist the project manager with a book about the Solar System, and its potential for future colonization.

I must add that, although there is no pay yet, we will receive shares equivalent to the amount of hours we work (also known as sweat equity). This is going to be great for my resume once I go to UT Austin!
