Function and Beauty

Our designs have withstood the test of time and space
by Charles B.

Space satellites were made by the folks in the Astro Space facility at East Windsor in New Jersey. During the 1980s and 1990s, I was a member of the security department, and one of my responsibilities was to inventory security devices in many of these spacecraft. They were truly works of art. Now, many of them are still out in space performing many useful tasks for many commercial and government customers. Thousands of talented men and women contributed their work lives to creating these beautiful and functional items.
