Howdy, [space] cadets!

I'm sorry if you don't want to see job postings on a hobby / activity
related list, but I think this may be of interest to some of the folks here.
 My lab at NASA Ames Research Center, in Mountain View is looking to higher
a computer vision researcher and some C++ engineers.  We're mapping
extraterrestrial planets, doing autonomous navigation research to drive
rovers around, and writing Android software that will run experiments on the
space station.  It's a very fun place to work!

Happy to field any questions.

Cheers,

Ted
