Clap clap clap!! Having spent a chunk of my engineering career on several, long-term projects that didn't see the light of day during my tenure, I can't imagine anything more rewarding than to see the successful launch of your product--into space, no less.
@Kfield, Thank you there was a large team of people much smarter than I working on it. It does feel pretty amazing to be honest, especially watching the launch last week.
This is the third generation processor, I am currently leading the development of the fourth and that is a step change again in performance and approach. It is a little annoying I cannot openly talk about how we do it but that is our competative edge ;)
