The BBC has created a monster infographic illustrating “every attempt to leave Earth’s orbit and reach a destination in extraterrestrial space – be it with probes, orbiters, rovers, or of course manned missions.”
The graphic shows successful and failed missions, country of launch origin and type of mission (eg., fly-by, rover, actual landing).

In Death To Bullshit, Brad Frost literally touches on every annoyance that’s been circling in my head for years now. Bullshit and noise are everywhere, and we’re all to blame.
I remember an annual company meeting years ago at a job I did not care for. The entire time I jotted down every jargon and bullshit phrase the CEO said in his hour long talk… I needed two pages.
I recently had a blog post in mind titled “Why I Sign Everything I Write With ML”. The idea was very similar to what Brad is saying. Not every blog post I write needs to change the world, but what I do contribute should be worth saying to somebody.
Creating content is a responsibility, and I take responsibility for all my content. If you create anything in this world, be it woodworking or advertising or words on a blog, learn the idea of craftsmanship.
Locking developers and/or designers into a 100% execution role is a missed opportunity; ideally, every role contributes to strategy.
