Science and Technology Log
The Officers, Intern officers, Survey crew and Engineering Staff are working all day producing the charts from the technological information we compiled from the work we did on the launches on Tuesday and Wednesday. It is very careful and detail-oriented type of work. They often work together to “bounce” ideas off of each other.
Today, I took the NOAA Security Awareness Course. It was very long. It took me over an hour to complete it, but I learned a great deal. At the end of the course, I took the test and got all of the answers correct. I must have been paying attention! Now I know how to make my own computer at home more secure and what to look for.
That’s it for today.
