A lot of people will accuse Jez of having too many costumes. Her response is typically as follows: "Look. Just because I have a separate costume closet, and five large plastic storage containers, which may be overflowing, plus everything scattered across the craft room, and drawers, and part of my real-clothes closet... doesn't mean there are too many!" In addition to being a costumer and crafter, Jez is interested in science, comics, movies, RPGs of all sorts, and even the occasional video game. When not consumed with her dozens of hobbies, she works as a software test engineer.

Salty Geek is going to space! (Almost… kinda.)

If you haven’t noticed by now, all of us at Salty Geek really like the topic of space and space exploration. Which is why I am really excited to make the following announcement:

As we said in the last episode, we were planningĀ to getĀ a few of us to go up to ATK for their upcoming static rocket test and getting you the best footage we possibly could. Well, now we’re stepping that promise up a notch! I will be heading up to ATK for two full days on March 10-11 to not only see the test, but also tour the facilities and get interviews with some of the rocket scientists and engineers (and maybe even a couple astronauts) who are involved with the development and use of these rockets to share with all of you!

The test will be on the the most powerful solid fueled rocket booster to date. Curious how solid fuel rockets work? Here’s a great breakdown from Space Daily if you want to read up before things get fired up!
