Dr. Rick Fleeter, father of small-satellite technology, recently launched this third book, Travels of a Thermodynamicist, which reveals the key ingredient for a rocket scientist and in life - the ability and inclination to remain constantly in motion.
When not traveling the world by air and train, he relaxes by traveling the world by bike, and has racked up over 15,000 miles per year. For variety, Dr. Fleeter swims in open water and runs marathons in Ironman competitions in the United States, Europe, and Asia. His regular rides are traversing the East Coast between Virginia and Rhode Island and through the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains. This collection of essays - humorous, often thought-provoking, and filled with the sincere, unexpected, sometimes poetic observations of a rocket scientist on a personal trajectory - will delight, stir, and capture listeners.
