I am sitting deep in a sea of cubicle. There are random voices and keyboard clicks. People are moving around with puropse… well, at least they’re giving off the purpose vibe. Like me they might just be here to hide for a while.
I don’t yet have a desk of my own. That means I’m hanging in the weather area which is ‘on-set’ and where Rachel is working. I’m giving her a little space.
I have been issued a cellphone and laptop. There are systems to learn to get company mail and put my stories in the rundown. That will come with time.
I did my first science report today, a look at the WISE satellite. NASA just release around a million and a half WISE photos.
Helaine said she enjoyed it though she wasn’t sure she understood it. That’s actually fine. Lots of science stories are complex. I just want to make them approachable. I don’t expect to explain interplanteary physics in an instant.
A lot of people here have asked me if I was happy to be here? Mostly they already knew the answer. They just wanted to be reassured their read of their own life was correct.
