Former NASA engineer. Current HU-gosr and friend of science.
Answers to some common questions:
1) I studied Mechanical Engineering in School. I did my undergrad at BYU and Masters at USC.
2) I worked for NASA JPL for 9 years, 7 of which were working on the Curiosity Rover (I made a video about it you should def totes watch cause it's probably my favorite of all my videos). I founded a company called Digital Dudz on my nights and weekends while working at NASA (also made some videos about that) and sold it to the guys who make Morphsuits in the UK. As part of the sale I quit my job at NASA and worked for them coming up with all their new costume ideas for 2 years. Recently, I was presented with an opportunity to return to my Engineering roots to come do some ideation type of work for a tech company near San Francisco.
3) Link to free and therefore substandard build plans for my custom workbench can be found below.

    Thank you for this video , I think more people should see this because "needing" meat as a protein has been a concept that has been driven by the meat industry, all of our lives we have been educated about human evolution , but yet Primates are vegetarian and we have known that our whole lives , these primates are healthy and stronger with only plant based diets. Just like milk - humans are the only species that continues to drink milk from other species and we know it causes inflammation

    I think you could coat your hand in some sort of wax that repels water. My guess is that water only makes things wet because the water sticks to your skin (adhesion). And wax might make a good repellant because it can’t be saturated and the water doesn’t stick to it. Also I just want to say thank you for doing these classes because it really gives me something to look forward to during the week

    The oil on your hands repels the water off of your hand and that's why the water drips off of your hand. Kind of like when you put oil and water in a cup they separate.

    In order for your hand not to be wet when you put your hand in water, you need to cover your hand with a hydrophobic substance. A hydrophobic substance is something that repels water and if you cover your hand with one it will keep your hand dry.

    My answer is that you pour lycopodium powder in with the water and dip your hand in. The powder will form a barrier between the water and your hand. Your hand will come out dry with some lycopodium powder still on it.
