Atenveldter Makes Real History

HL Mikhail Andreyevich Putnikov called Misha has been making history. In the modern world, Misha is Mike Bushroe, an engineer working through the University of Arizona on the Huygens Probe that landed on the moon, Titan.

From his bio on the U of A site:

Mike has played leading roles in three different areas of our program. He developed the software that allowed us to collect calibration data in our laboratory in a completely automated manner. He also played a key role in analyzing the calibration data obtained for the DISR Infrared Spectrometer. Most recently, he has developed much of the software necessary to assemble panoramic mosaics from the raw imaging data to be returned from Titan.

Misha is currently in Germany assembling the photographs for all us to view. The Barony of Tir Ysgithr (Tucson, AZ) is very proud! He's stayed in limited contact with us and says he's busy, not sleeping much and was interview by the BBC on The Heartbeat of Huygens which aired on the Discovery channel on Sunday.

Here's to one of our own making real history. YIS, Lady Ianuk Raventhourne BTY Seneschal

Viscount Sir Morven of Carrick and his wife, Countess Amina Sherana deTalavera (originally Sheryl of Thespis, who was second queen of the Society), have been staff members on lab for many years, but I don't know which projects they're on.
