Top 5 Extraordinary Projects this Month


Extraordinary projects are fascinating. They can inspire, achieve, break barriers, break people and we are all drawn to them.

I have the privilege of working on two extraordinary projects at the moment; The Bloodhound Programme and LENA Space. SuperSonic cars and rocketry.

This doesn’t stop me enjoying and marvelling at extraordinary projects and here is a list of my top five extraordinary projects seen this month.
