Apollo 11 Exhibit at Houghton Library

While on site doing some field documentation (we’re designing masonry repairs for the building) I had the opportunity to take in this exhibit at Harvard’s Houghton Library. Highly recommended if you’re in the area.

On display are landmarks in the history of science from Houghton Library’s collections—such as first editions of Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton—together with rarely exhibited highlights from a private spaceflight collection, including artifacts used during the Apollo 11 mission and on the moon itself by astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Together, these objects illuminate the path of research and discovery that made Apollo 11 possible.

The exhibition is free and open to the public. Closes August 3.

Talking Building Envelope Consulting on the Building Materials Podcast

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Andy Armento on his freshly launched Building Materials Podcast. We chatted about a (very) wide range of topics from building envelope consulting (of course) to materials testing and even robots taking over the world.

The Building Materials Podcast describes itself this way:

The mission of The Building Materials Podcast to educate those owners, architects, specifiers, engineers, consultants, and installers about the latest technologies which are disrupting the AEC industry.

Andy’s got a made-for-broadcast voice and me, well, I know some stuff about building science. Anyway, if you’re looking for a half hour of fun listening for your next commute, check out Episode 3 here: http://buildingmaterialspodcast.com/index.php/episodes/
