  • Sitting Down For Family Dinner Aboard Space Stations

    26 MAR 2024 · In this episode of The Bom: Engineering a Path Forward, I’m going to ask you to think about a rather futurist question: what does daily life look like in space? Sure, we have the Hollywood version of life amongst the stars. Star Wars, Dune, and even cult classics like Alien give us an idealistic glimpse. However, these are far from the reality of what it’s like to gather around and break bread in zero gravity. Today’s guest is Sana Sharma, the co-founder and chief design officer at the Aurelia Institute, a non-profit space architecture R&D lab. Throughout this episode, she gives us an inside look into the incredible research she and her team have conducted into the ways that astronauts live their daily lives while on missions in the final frontier, how advanced technology doesn’t have to exclude the human factor, and how she hopes her research will change the future of space exploration.

  • Episode 40: The 60 Second Architect with Tomide Adesanmi

    27 FEB 2024 · Tomide Adesanmi is the co-founder and CEO of Circuit Mind. Algorithmic software that helps electronics engineers and designers go from architecture to complete schematics in roughly 60 seconds. In Tomide's experience, far too many electronics designers and engineers spend far too much time drawing and planning the architecture of their motherboards. Researching components suppliers, reading complex manuals and workflows, and starting over when something doesn't work right on the motherboard all contribute to this loss in innovation. These experiences shaped Tomide's vision for Circuit Mind during his time in the defense industry and why Tomide firmly believes that AI is a tool to enhance a designer's workflow, not steal their career.
