    25 year-old Fatima Dyczynski, CEO, founder and project manager of Xoterra Space, was an Aerospace Engineer, thought leader, scientist, creative space enthusiast, motivated entrepreneur, public speaker, all world traveller and absolute futurist

    She perished July 17, 2014 on flight MH-17 over Ukraine.

    Fatima was Operations Engineer for the Delfi-n3Xt CubeSat which carried an amateur radio linear transponder. Delfi-n3Xt was successfully launched in November 2013.

    She presented the paper ‘A novel business model to substantiate the commercial viability of a CubeSat constellation for advanced Earth Observation and monitoring’ at the International Astronautical Federation Conference 2013 (IAC-13) in Beijing and had been planning to present a paper this September at IAC-14 in Canada.

    It is reported her ultimate dream was to journey to Mars as an astronaut.

    Another Point-of-Light snuffed out and cut short. Depressing...

    Godspeed to her and the others whose lives were tragically taken.

    It was stunning to learn of the murder of this brilliant, young woman by the barbarians who fired upon an unarmed civilian aircraft. Who can say what good the world was deprived of by this mindless and vicious act. May she rest in peace and find fulfillment of her dreams in the life to come!

    The world has lost a bright light. Watching the video of her TED talk, I thought it ironic that at the end, she read a statement that encouraged the development of space as a way to reduce conflict in our world.

    I'm not attacking anybody, I just wanted to know what NERVISE means. If this gets everyone to spell correctly or at the very least use their spell checker then that's a good thing. :rolleyes:
