Honoring Technology’s Pioneering Heroes

Not to start our first blog post off on a negative note but, on this day in 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia suffered a catastrophic failure and broke apart over Texas. We all know exactly what we were doing when we heard the sad news. Instead of focusing on the sadness, I prefer to concentrate on the absolutely incredible technology and science that went into the shuttle program. It boggles the mind to think how engineers were able to create a reusable spacecraft that could do what the shuttle did.

Over the course of the program and 135 flights, shuttle missions launched the Hubble Telescope, assembled the International Space Station, and put several satellites into orbit just to name a few accomplishments. Additionally, the experiments and research the crews conducted while in space significantly enhanced all of our lives.

That is what this blog is really about. It is going to primarily focus on technology that helps improve our lives, both personally and professionally. Kopis Mobile is dedicated to solving problems for our military and first responders. What they do on a daily basis is crucial to our Nation’s defense and the safety of all its citizens.

We intend for this to be an interactive blog. We want to hear your feedback, good or bad. We want to know what your immediate needs are and what would make your daily job easier.

Check back with us regularly, we plan on having new posts weekly. But, if there is super interesting information coming at us; we are going to share it with you as soon as we get it.
