Goodbye Chris and welcome to the OS community

Well it’s now official, Chris Maxwell (The father of NASA World Wind) will be leaving NASA to work at Intelesense Technologies, the good news is he will be able to return to working on World Wind .NET.

We look forward to him becoming a bigger part of the World Wind community, NASA’s loss may well be our gain.

On a personal note I’d like to say thanks for everything you have done in making World Wind what it is today Chris, you have given a lot of bored geeks focus, and helped educate many people on the world(s) around us.
