this is Scott Hudspeth. I interviewed with you in the Fall of 2007 for the Boulder ChopHouse AGM position.
How have you been? I wasn't sure if you had stayed with RockBottom after all their corporate cuts shortly after we had been meeting. So nice to see you are still with such a great company!
I would love to speak with you and catch up with where you and Rock Bottom are at ,in light of the last two years "perfect storm" of economic challenges in our industry.
I hope all is well. I would still like to let you know what I have been up to and talk with you about any current opportunities with your wonderful company. Hope to hear from you, take care. Scott :)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
