I spent the first few warm days of summer in a cold, empty, and dark computer lab. Worse than just being nerdy, I was stressed. Our senior project had us partnered with Lockheed to design a magical computer chip — one that detects errors in messages and that can even correct those errors on the receiving end without asking for a re-transmit. This is super important when the message can be ‘scrambled’ by interstellar radiation or other noise, and it can take minutes to reach the other end (Spaceships) and or you don’t have time to resend the message (Missiles)…
