00:00:01
however thank you very much for the uh for the
00:00:07
kind improper are not large but i i
00:00:14
i i i probably okay but i will say some words about the story which is a time bin
00:00:24
ah but there are actually a pretty or e. i. e.
00:00:34
uh
00:00:37
or or or the e. or or or or
00:00:50
uh uh that's not because we are there you know
00:00:59
where where uh_huh or yeah or who who who
00:01:05
are you are you are you know
00:01:09
ooh uh_huh
00:01:12
to write a ah or uh
00:01:20
uh_huh eventually message that eventually became there
00:01:25
um the uh the team leader are that befell a loop that second
00:01:31
to me and said that you know are there is this computer
00:01:34
and uh in los angeles uh i intercept america tina
00:01:39
and then i said you know there was this group website introduce intercept to make something
00:01:43
and i don't know how it internally in all the channel the students have
00:01:49
being financed format are nice in a couple of days so we're talking about uh this
00:01:54
bebop sounder in faster than the speed of sound these exercise was even faster
00:01:59
so actually buy them made of september we already had the
00:02:04
teen and partly form the end up and running
00:02:08
the problem was that we were late the problem was that seems that
00:02:14
time we decided to compete uh we've everybody because actually we had no design we had no
00:02:21
idea of how the part should look like a a which were the sub components nothing
00:02:26
and the one with the the our first meeting uh you can
00:02:30
see recognise myself processors you fat and the phase of this
00:02:34
gentleman which is then is to there that was looking like mm
00:02:38
had one point what is gonna happen right anyhow um
00:02:45
that's happen next summer approach read the the production of top
00:02:49
down fashion so essentially we try to formulate an optimisation
00:02:53
problem to the fine oh the general performance in parameters
00:02:57
of the pole from the use a first design
00:03:02
uh would you so that the subcomponent see not very coarse way
00:03:06
and then we submit that the project to to space x. is was around or not then right so
00:03:14
we both busy but don't together with several thousands of teams
00:03:20
and the would much of a our surprise were selected
00:03:23
in a few tens of teens and you can only imagine
00:03:27
the excitation the distributor done in all the team
00:03:32
and then there was the next stage next age was okay now we have a
00:03:36
very nice on design concept we wanted to make it a more detailed
00:03:42
and then we spend uh the month of december and part of generally
00:03:47
essentially naked detail the design of all those all components of the pollen
00:03:53
so you cannot see imaging the amount of hours that these guys this band nine inch in they
00:04:00
to prepare this document that was eventually submitted to the
00:04:03
space x. engineers uh by the fifteen of generally
00:04:07
and uh we send it and that there are some people that were constantly on the f. five button over there
00:04:14
you know email account to look for the reply so reply eventually came by
00:04:20
the end of a right then is i guess that was uh
00:04:22
yeah the constant frequency of one or it's pushing on the f. five button i was saying what are you doing and be sorry
00:04:34
right and uh so that is what i came by the end of
00:04:37
generally hands we where in the top twenty finalists and uh oh
00:04:42
well this was uh just fantastic for the whole team and here we are
00:04:56
so here we have a building the pod a and b. use face is buried allocate be because
00:05:01
actually all the ideas that these guys that put together now that to count to live
00:05:06
so we had to contact all the industrial partners so they can manufacture of sample some of the components
00:05:12
so they have to re manufacture several times because you know the the the the design feedback
00:05:17
and getting a very delicate face what all the pieces that to to be put together
00:05:23
unfortunately i cannot reveal the performance of the paul and none of
00:05:28
its characteristics but what i can tell you is that
00:05:31
i've been surprised that very possibly white shoe characteristics of this is the first is the commitment
00:05:40
it's incredible the amount of time to spend on this product i was really
00:05:44
amazed to see them working feel three four o'clock in the morning
00:05:49
on the finding ah us out pieces to save some underground so wait on the structure of the ball
00:05:56
and the second thing it's the capacity that they have to think out of the box
00:06:03
and i i pretty much agree with them laughing that
00:06:05
the the the school is comparable to generate engineers
00:06:11
researchers and people like all of you that thinking out of the box
00:06:16
the creativity that has been put in this part is something that surprised me
00:06:22
they and they after that the dual building this poll a um
00:06:29
i'm i'm very surprised to see the technical competence and the crew d. v.
00:06:34
d. of the people that uh these are the two jaundiced in
00:06:38
i don't know what is gonna be the results of this exercise because
00:06:42
the competition is body types what i can tell you is that
00:06:48
we as supervisors and the all the team to members will do all they can to
