自由职业者能帮助NASA和火箭科学吗?

"它是一架飞机吗?是鸟吗?

不......是猎鹰9号正在返回地球的路上!"

2017 saw the 启动 of the first private rocket by SpaceX from the NASA pad. The awe-inspiring landing of the rocket on the launchpad demonstrates all kinds of exciting possibilities the future holds.

  

正如人们所想象的那样,任何火箭成功发射到太空,都需要多年的艰苦工作和具有各种技能的人之间的合作,他们将自己的经验和知识汇集到一起,作为一个团队工作。国际空间站本身是由各国的五个参与机构共同完成的。 
 
航天机构传统上一直在招聘内部人才,但有成千上万的技术人员会抓住机会与他们进行远程工作。2015年,美国宇航局卓越合作创新中心(CoECI)通过与Freelancer.com合作,冒险进入自由职业者市场,为特定项目雇用专家。 在网站上发布 "挑战"。, which has over 16 million registered users, it crowdsourced solutions from engineers all over the world. The winner received prize money ranging from $50 to $3000. NASA has also used TopCoder to source specific algorithms for detecting asteroids in telescopic images. 十个组织在与NASA签订的合同中,促进了NASA面临的各种挑战的众包和合作创新,包括 设计一个自由飞行的机器人  到 为太空行走设计扶手.

令人惊讶的是,空间研究领域的远程办公工作的数量正在增加,各组织慢慢向公众敞开大门。知名远程办公工作网站Flexjobs上的一个工作机会。 发布了一个空缺 for a Senior Spacecraft Mechanical Engineer while the European Space Agency recruits freelance consultants for various short-term projects. Considering the wide range of 学术 disciplines and skillsets that make up a team in a space research organization, this is unsurprising. As outlined in this 文章, “The most frequently hired academic disciplines include aerospace engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, software engineering but also 天体物理学, astronomy, physics and mathematics. The successful candidates most usually have a master’s level degree. The remaining 20% often have advanced degrees in 业务 administration or law.” In fact, some astronauts and space engineers even come from backgrounds as diverse as deep sea diving and gaming. 快速公司》引用了埃隆-马斯克的话 如是说。

""我们实际上从游戏行业中聘请了很多最好的软件工程师,"SpaceX首席执行官埃隆-马斯克说,当 快速公司 posed this question during the May 29 Dragon V2 unveiling. “In gaming there’s a lot of smart engineering talent doing really complex things. [Compared to] a lot of the algorithms involved in massive multiplayer online games…a docking sequence [between spacecraft]is actually relatively straightforward. So I’d encourage people in the gaming industry to think about creating the next generation of spacecraft and rockets.””

鉴于在一个组织中建立一个包含上述所有专业知识的团队并不容易,自由职业者经济在这里有巨大的空间。这些公司自然会把目光投向市场网站,以便 聘请专家 来自不同背景的人参与具体项目。空间组织还 雇佣科学作家进行远程写作.

研究的未来在于 协作 个人、组织和国家之间。也许公司会效仿NASA的做法,开始与个人和团队合作,不受地点或政策的限制。在这个过程中,他们最终也会节省为短期项目在内部招聘专业人才所需的时间和成本。合作越大,创新就越光明。 只有这样,我们才能达到星星,字面上的意思。
