And yeah, so. Here I am.
Summer 2013 is coming to an end swifter than I knew it. Being at work, it splits your sense of time up into chunks of weeks, with every weekend at work feeling like every evening when you're in college. Time has sped up 7 times for me this summer.
While I'm here slaving over Flabels and CATIA though, the awesome people in my solar car team finished our 11th solar car - Daedalus! I was there for the most part of the shell building, but the mechanical innards of this pearly white beauty was largely built in the summer. Over the course of one year, we progressed from designing, to analysing parts, to actually building this guy. Looking back, it was one hell of a crazy ride - but the craziest is still yet to come. Isn't she a beauty? :D
To be honest, I wished with every single bone of my existence to join them in their building of the car parts - the rollcage, the chassis, everything. Seeing the car completed is so relieving, as it is also heartening. One of the times where I curse the planet for being a little too big and the planes for being too slow and too expensive.
Oh well, what's done is done, and I really hope that this guy gets to Australia in one piece! Wish us luck for the race too!
