The Seedling Accelerator experiment continued this week at Stennis Space Center @nasastennis! This is a joint effort between Aerospace’s iLab Innovation Programs team and the NASA Chief Technologist Officer’s office. The experiment is designed to encourage ideation and collaboration across the NASA Centers with the programs we have developed at Aerospace as a foundation. In this challenge, the Stennis Chief Technologist and her team asked two questions: 1) How can we design inexpensive data acquisition sensors to collect currently overlooked (non-critical) data during rocket engine testing? 2) How can we modernize our rocket propellant delivery methods to test articles? The team spent the two half-day sessions working through ideas submitted by NASA employees and contractors across several centers. #seedaccelerator #technology #concepts #innovation #nasa #aerospace #partnership #collaboration #propellant #data

“My close friend Louis had #bipolar and #schizoaffective disorder. The onset of his psychosis began when he was 19. Throughout his life, he was happy, athletic, musically gifted, social and a stellar student. He was hospitalized several times and rejected therapy due to side effects of his medication. One day, he went for a walk and didn't return. Three months later, his remains were found near a river.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Losing Louis made me resolve to do something to help people living with #mentalillness. During #NationalMentalHealthWeek in May 2018, I launched a #CaringCrowd project, raising $30,000 in 3 weeks for @namicommunicate El Dorado, which is where Louis' parents lived. The funds helped train 600 families to support loved ones with mental illness. So, I kind of fell into this and kept going. My friend David Markovich, who built @OnlineGeniuses, and I created 18percent, an online #mentalhealth community named that because at any given moment, 18% of the U.S. population suffers from mental illness.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ @18percentcommunity is a free online chat service, hosted on @SlackHQ, with 'channels' where people hang out and share. Everything's anonymous and moderated to offer a safe environment. We have a veterans' channel for people dealing with #PTSD, #eatingdisorder and #depression channels and a caregiver channel. Every week, people message me to say if it wasn't for 18percent, they wouldn't be alive today.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I try to share resources and try to be empathetic. I'm just willing to listen and talk about mental health. For many people, when you're in that dark place you feel so isolated. When someone can get on your level and be empathetic and listen to what’s going on versus just feeling bad for you—that’s a big distinction—when you're able to say, ‘I've been through what you're going through,’ that's what can make a difference. That's the first step.⁣⁣" ⁣ – Zach Schleien, Business Analyst and Mental Health Diplomat, Johnson & Johnson, and Co-Founder of 18percent⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you or a loved one is having a mental health crisis, know that there's help. Go to the nearest hospital, call 1-800-273-TALK, or text HELLO to the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 to reach someone live.⁣⁣
