Today was my first day at . where I will develop avionics firmware for and other vehicles. 🚀

It won't come as a surprise to those who know me well: for years, I've been watching countless Falcon 9 launches and Starship test flights as if they were some sort of sporting event.


Now I can watch them with more telemetry, and higher stakes. The next time a Starship craters on the landing pad, it could be due to a bug in my firmware. Finally, my work will have a big... impact! 💥

Many thought that propulsively landing a rocket booster was impossible. Now Falcon 9 does it routinely.

Full vehicle reusability is the next big milestone, and was thought to be impossible. Hopefully will demonstrate it soon.

Reusability it's the key to making space exploration affordable.

This is why so many space enthusiasts are flocking to Boca Chica to witness and document this historic milestone:

Since childhood, I've been dreaming of piloting a giant starship.

This will be a fully autonomous vehicle, piloted by software written by my team and many others. Reality beats imagination.

Ok, we won't have laser guns for now...

@codewiz Incredibly awesome! Congratulations! I know you'll keep us updated of all the cool stuff!

@codewiz Congratulations. Sounds like a dream job for a space nerd like yourself.

- Before: you watched them from afar
- Now: you see them closely
- Next: you ride them 😀

@Fabimaru The landing legs of a Falcon 9 booster are truly huge!

@codewiz you did it! Congratulations from me and the family :)

Congrats and enjoy the experience of working in Space tech. It's a great community of nice and nerdy people all over the world.

@codewiz So I guess we’ll get more 🚀 pictures and less 🚋 pictures? :oscar:

@meduz I'm afraid that now that I'm an insider, I won't be able to do more expeditions like this:
