Aerospace engineers are the new rocket scientists


Do you remember when everyone held rocket scientists with such high regard, that their intelligence was strategically launched as joke punchline? I feel like aerospace engineers are that for advertisers.

In the space of a week I’ve heard aerospace engineers (allegedly) support a mattress payment plan, a razor, and a breed of tomatoes.

You’d need to have a brain between your ears to juggle the physics, mathematics, and industrial design to be an aerospace engineer, but I’m not sure what uniquely qualifies them to recommend such things! ✈️
