Constance Adams, Space Architect She designed the International Space Station's TransHab module (a prototype for manned Mars missions), and says cool things about what the role of architecture is: "Architecture involves forming harmony around the human system, balancing culture, biology, planetary knowledge and technology in counterpoint to the unknowable."

I went to college with this woman, and she was universally hated.

Like, famously hated. By everyone. I remember someone in my Freshman Writing class writing a story called "The Constancy of Constance" which was about how much he hated her.

I'm just going to post a tiny snippet of her Class Report entry:

"Houston is not a healthy city, but I (Adams, Constance M.) adore this crazy, crazy job!--in which I have daily opportunities to pose really fundamental questions concerning all aspects of the human condition. Here's another thing I've learned: We...are...earthlings..."

This same college class gave the world Jeff Zucker (head of NBC Entertainment), Jeffrey Rosen (CNN pundit-guy), and Tom Morello (guitarist for Rage Against The Machine and now Audioslave).

I don't quite know why everyone hated Constance so much--she did have one of those really penetrating voices that give you a headache after about 30 seconds. And she was goth before goth was cool--she used to walk around campus in a black cape, as I recall.

But I was just too drunk to hate when I was in college.
