What a great friend to rocketry and someone who is more committed to paying it forward than anyone else I have ever met. Aurora and John were tremendous to my TARC team this past year when we went to Nationals and visited their facilities. Hopefully that is allowed to continue under Boeing ownership.
I hope Boeing does as described in Dominic Gates' story (Roy's link) and lets Aurora run pretty much independently as they have with Insitu. I'd hate to see such an innovative company get sucked into the larger Boeing morass and the multiple NIH camps in the company.
