Susan, those Star parties sounds so cool.  I would love to go on one of those star gazing excursions.  I'm so glad to hear that kids, and their families, get the opportunity to learn about astronomy in this fun way.  Thank you for your volunteer work!!

The story of young engineer Rockiel is inspiring. That's cool. Keep up the good work. I volunteer sometimes with an amateur astronomy group that goes out to elementary schools to "star parties" -- the only celebrities are Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter. The kids and their parents who show up are so excited and interested. Usually the groups are very multicultural -- often the parents are immigrants and the kids may be 1st generation American. It's heartwarming to see the parents get so excited when they see Saturn or Jupiter through a telescope. The kids are excited too, of course, but I like see the parents get into it with them. Even when you go to places that don't need any encouragement, such when our group went to Earth Day at Qualcomm (where for Earth Day means tests drives in Teslas), even then the engineers are thrilled and fascinated to see telescopes, especially the DIY telescopes.

The vast majority of the embedded designers I know typically create MCU-based systems -- they rarely even consider using a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
