On a business swing through

You got to love history. It changes with perspective and opinion. Even the clearest of facts become fuzzy in time. They can be stretched, or bent, or twisted, or even… occasionally… left alone. No wonder we engineering-types rarely ventured out of the math building; too many variables.
You are probably wondering what this has to do with a Memory page blog. So do I. Well, first, it does show that marketing guys are not, as commonly believed, workaholics that are on their computers 24/7. I’m more of a 23/7 guy myself. And, most importantly, if these guys would have had some data recorders planted around the mission with nvSRAM memory inside.. a system that would save the data even if the power supply got shot to pieces, they could have captured all these facts. We would know exactly what happened. We’d all be happier. And maybe… just maybe… more engineers would be enjoying history classes today.
Until next trip, Grant
