Almost 7 years ago, while going through some personal issues, I made a terrible mistake and ended up being convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) in the State of California. It was a dark period in my life, but I have moved on and learned my lesson. This spring, however, my intoxicated driving conviction […]

Back in July, Caledon, ON based Canadensys Aerospace picked up a contract from the Waimea, HI based International Lunar Observatory Association (ILOA) to build instrumentation for the first ILO Lunar Observatory rover.
|We live in a small world. As outlined in the July 3rd, 2014 Lunar Enterprise Daily post, “ILOA Partnering With Canadensys Aerospace Corp On ILO-1 Flagship Moon Mission,” the partnership between the two organizations goes back several years.The ILOA is also part of the Space Age Publishing Company, which shares links and stories with the Commercial Space blog.

Almost immediately, and in a stunning human resources coupe, Canadensys scooped-up New Hamburg, ON based Ontario Drive and Gear (ODG) ARGO VP of engineering Peter Visscher, project manager Perry Edmundson, and senior mechanical designer Peter Woolfrey.
And yesterday, as if to celebrate those acquisitions, Canadensys announced the creation of a Waterloo, ON based “new facility for space mechanical design and advanced manufacturing.”
As outlined in the September 21st, 2017 Canadensys press release, “Canadensys announces advanced manufacturing capability in the Waterloo region,” the new facility will support the company’s “expanding space and exploration initiatives.” Of course, the expectation is that the new facility will also support ILOC efforts to build a lunar observatory rover.
And, as outlined in the July 20th, 2017 ILOA post on “The ILO Mission,” contract work is advancing through Silicon Valley, CA based Moon Express Inc for “ILO-1 Landing Technology Advanced R&D, with actual ILO-1 spacecraft development by Moon Express to begin in 2018.“
According to the post, the Canadensys contribution was a “a flight-ready low-cost optical payload for the ILO-1 mission, ruggedized for the Moon South Pole environment,” called the “Lunar Optics Program.“
|A sampling of proposed Moon Express robotic explorers. It’s worth noting that Toronto born Moon Express CEO Robert Richards also started out in Canada, but eventually ended up moving to the US to generate funding for his company. Graphic c/o ME.|
ODG was evidently sanguine about the manpower losses. The September 21st, 2017 SpaceQ post, “Canadensys is Expanding its Operations Opening an Advanced Manufacturing Facility in Waterloo,” quoted Joerg Stieber, the chairman of the board at ODG, as stating that his company “had decided to refocus on their terrestrial extreme terrain robots.”
Of course, there was also the possibility that the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) had run out of money for ODG to research lunar rovers.
As outlined most recently in the April 10th, 2017 post, “General Fusion, exactEarth’s Missing (But Insured) Satellite, More CSA Rovers & ULA Drops Launch Costs,” those funds were substantial, but depended in the final analysis on acquiring a deal with another international partner, a situation which never materialized.
It’s also worth noting that the senior team at Canadensys, including president and CEO Christian Sallaberger, VP of space exploration Nadeem Ghafoor, chief engineer of space exploration Howard Jones and director of strategic development Jim Middleton each started off in far duller and more traditional jobs in either Richmond, BC based MacDonald Dettwiler (MDA) or at the CSA.
We all gotta start somewhere.
Here’s hoping that the Canadensys people and their previous employers are able to manage the intellectual property derived from their earlier positions so they can still be utilized by Moon Express, the ILOA and anyone else who wants to use it.
Editors Note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that “Canadensys Aerospace picked up a contract from the Waimea, HI based International Lunar Observatory Association (ILOA) and Silicon Valley CA based Moon Express to build the first lunar observatory rover.”
That statement was in error. Although both Moon Express and Canadensys do have a customer in common (the ILOA), there is no contractual relationship or formal partnership between Moon Express and Canadensys.
I want to argue that Waugh could not have been a great satirist were he not a Catholic, and, more controversially, that his satire had its source in appropriation of the truths of Catholicism rather than in extenuation of its precepts. Most fundamentally, it was Catholicism that made “Waugh the insular and class-conscious bully” into […]
Clustered disasters hold our attention in ways that singular events cannot — they open our minds to the possibility that these aren’t just accidents or natural phenomena to be painfully endured. As such, they can provoke debates over the larger “disaster lessons” we should be learning. And I would argue the combination of Harvey and Irma has triggered such a moment.

This 5 Minute Fall Berry Wreath is SO easy to make, and adds just the perfect touch of fall to your front door! – – – – – – As you may know already, I’m a big fan of wreaths hung on front doors. I think they’re the perfect way to greet those who come up to your home…they’re just a nice warm welcome. And because I’m kind of obsessed with wreaths, I also like to change them up with the seasons…I have wreaths for Christmas, Halloween, Winter, Summer…you name it, I made it. This fall I decided to make a new wreath to go with my Harvest Theme Fall Front Porch. I wanted something simple and not too overpowering because I have a lot going on in this space already. So I kept things super simple and made this 5 Minute Fall Berry Wreath. Honestly, this wreath is so easy it’s ridiculous. But as I’ve learned, sometimes all we need is the inspiration to make our own project, so that’s why I’m sharing this simple wreath DIY with you. Just because something is easy doesn’t mean it’s not beautiful. All you need to do is head out to your nearest craft […]
While packing my gear for a backcountry camping trip in Ontario’s Algonquin Provincial Park this July, it quickly became apparent that my old, heavy three-person tent just wasn’t going to cut it for myself, my husband and our two ever-growing teenage boys anymore. So I decided to find a sturdy, easy to set up and lightweight tent for the boys to share. Enter the MS2 Access 2 all-season two-person tent.
