I'm an Ex-rocket scientist. I now work at a startup filled with similar ex-rocket scientists. One day (if the US President, US Congress, and US public are willing), NASA will get its act together and we will become ex-ex-rocket scientists. Until then, all the math, physics, and engineering we learned about making rockets reliably, economically, and safely move from point A to point B are exactly what is needed to safely make all kinds of other devices move from point A to point B.
