At 10th Magnitude, we pride ourselves on innovation, on disruption, and going farther faster than ever. If you’re familiar with National Aeronautics and Space Administration, or NASA, you probably know that they share a similar vision.
NASA strives to achieve new heights just as 10th Magnitude’s Agility Quadrant pushes enterprises toward previously unmatched levels of technical agility.
But why are we making this connection?
We’re delighted to announce that Ira Bell, 10th Magnitude’s CTO, is slated to attend a two-day event sponsored by NASA, culminating in the launch of the 16th SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft on a Falcon 9 rocket.
The unmanned cargo is destined for the International Space Station, which is “a convergence of science, technology and human innovation that demonstrates new technologies and enables research not possible on Earth.”
Ira’s NASA Connection
Since childhood, Bell has been fascinated with NASA. His great-great-grandfather’s historic orange farm on Merritt Island, located in Brevard County, Florida, is just a few miles from the secure area of Kennedy Space Center.
Bell’s ancestral home was once a functioning orange farm, but is now a historic home and museum on the Pine Island Conservation Area and is well known for being the oldest standing home in Brevard county dating back to 1875. Bell’s family has been captivated in the Kennedy Space Center since it was founded in 1962-1963 and regularly watching launch events since the first launch of the Apollo 4 Mission in 1967.
We’re delighted that Ira Bell was invited by NASA and SpaceX to observe this rare occurrence, and we can’t wait to share more about it!
