A recent MSNBS segment of Money, Power, and Politics featured a story about college students competing in a contest to save social security might provide a positive glimpse of what this world is coming to. As more and more people agree that the current politics of the day have reached a complete level of dysfunction, it is refreshing to know that former White House aides and representatives are working with teams of the nation’s best and the brightest college students to solve a problem that has plagued the financial future of many.
Although there are many reasons to celebrate this season’s high school gradates, perhaps one of the best is knowing that this indeed may be the generation that saves the nation. As laser cutting and engraving machines across the nation are completing intricately detailed graduation gifts and plaques this graduation season, many of us might decide to give this year’s graduates a little more attention.
Custom Laser Cutting Services Can be Used for a Variety of Purposes
If you are weary of watching the latest political news that look more like family feuds then you might instead want to spend your time paying attention to the latest achievements and aspirations of today’s college students. Katie Bouman, former Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) student, has been covered extensively in the news this week for her development of a computer program that helped develop the algorithm that created the first image ever of a black hole. The breakthrough image shows a halo of dust and gas 500 million trillion km from Earth. And while it was her work at MIT and later programs that made this recent development possible, it may have been Bouman’s earlier interest in high school physics that sparked her imagination.
From black holes in space to financial black holes in the finances of the government that threaten the social security administration, our nation and our world will certainly be dependent upon the ideas and innovative solutions that are provided by the next generation of great minds.
The laser cutting and engraving that is used to create gifts for today’s graduations may be only the beginning of the awards and recognitions that will be presented to the future scientists and mathematician, as well as business and finance entrepreneurs. From laser engraving plastic techniques that are used to create intricate scientific tools to the laser cutting and engraving that is done for awards to recognize people for these tools, there seems to be a connection between the accolades that we offer today to graduates who will recreate and reimagine our future.
There are many business that need large quantities of laser cuts, but interestingly enough the skills needed to get these cuts may depend on this generation of graduates. The weakest lasers are eye safe and are classified as Class 1 lasers; in comparison, the most powerful lasers in the world are Class 4, types of lasers that can start a fire. Used in everything from creating graduation gifts to aero space parts, this is a technology that will drive our future in more ways than one.
