In 2014 the department of Bionanoscience will get a new department head, so they made her a welcome video. Science, serious business.

The ground station confirmed that it received a signal from the delfi-n3ct, they could confirm that it was the satellite, but the signal was not clear enough to decipher. Probably on the next pass it will.

Apparently this dnepr launched 33 satellites into orbit, a record!

Launch went ok. Separation was confirmed. Now eagerly awaiting the first pass over Delft.

Delfi-n3xt launch event

I am at the Delfi-n3xt launch event at the TU Delft. The sat will launch in a bit with a Dnepr rocket

My university, TU Delft, has placed signs warning cyclers to dismount during storm. Today a storm blew them over. (Tom Verhoeff)

Gestolen in Delft aan de Schieweg:

Mercedes Benz 508 oprijwagen met dubbele cabine, kleur groen met geel, kenteken 93-XB-69, chassisnummer 30940410397439. De oprijwagen wordt sinds 21-10 vermist, maar kan al langer weg zijn. De afgelopen maand is er door mij uitsluitend in Delft mee gereden. Mocht je dit voertuig zien of hebben gezien, maak foto’s en schakel de politie in en laat het mij weten op 06-18253628 of info[at]autobi.nlGroet & dank, Tobias

Het is waarschijnlijk de eniga wagen van dit type in deze kleuren.

First female dean of the Aerospace faculty in Delft.
Hester Bijl has been appointed as the new dean of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. Out of the 8 deans at the TU Delft, Bijl will be the third woman. She will start her work on the 15th of April in a field that is notorious for its unequal share of women, only 10% of the student population at this faculty is women. 
Hester Bijl, with her full title Mrs. prof. dr. ir. drs. Hester Bijl, studied mathematics (in Delft) after which she started a PhD. in computational fluid dynamics. At the same time she got a degree in English in Leiden. After a short interval working in industry she started her scientific work at the chair of aerodynamics in Delft in 1999. In 2006 she was appointed as Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor, a chair which aims to promote young scientists at an early age. This appointment made her the first female professor at the faculty of Aerospace Engineering.
Often she is describe as a cheerful, open and inspirational person. The mother of two lives with the motto ‘Try to get as much out of your life as possible.’ She aims to develop ideas into the future. A future which she tries to better with her involvement in green energy institutes as the director of the Delft Energy Initiative and as a member on teh supervisory board of ECN (Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands). 
In my bachelor I have taken several courses in which she lectured. She always managed to interest the people on the subject at hand. Bijl strives to realise an environment where everyone can reach its fullest potential. 
In her new job Bijl would like to make her faculty top class in the world:”First of all, I would like to strengthen our connections to the world at large. We make a difference with our first-class education and our relevant research. And we can do even more.”

Winter is coming and my friends and I talked about the ice and snow to come. It reminded me of last January, there was enough ice on the channel in front of my house to skate, and everyone did. It was great!
