April 2016 Newsletter
A Letter from the Editor:
Gooooood Morning, ERA! Or Afternoon...or evening...or whenever you decide to take a break out of
your busy day to mercilessly mock my lack of movie-quote knowledge. It’s ok, you can judge; I can
handle it.
My name is Brittany Novy-Mackey and I have been with GA-ASI for almost 2 years. My first position
was as a Sensor Operator on the MQ-1B and MQ-1C and, after a little over a year in Flight Operations, I transferred to Project Engineering where I am now the Control Account Manager on the MQ9 Block 5 and VORTEX. As corny as it may sound, I really do love this company, so when I saw an
opening for “Newsletter Editor” that had difficulty being filled, I decided to throw my hat into the
ring.
Now, for those that have worked with me on this newsletter by giving me feedback and submitting
ads, you know that I may have bitten off more than I could chew. I did an utterly miserable job on
my first edition (March 2016), and I will be the first to admit it. I threw it together in the few hours I
had and made multiple errors, but mistakes are crucial because that’s how you learn (wise advice
from an awesome supervisor of mine). So, now its time to make it better and grow!
But I need your help (yes, I know that’s improper English...I told you that you can judge already,
sheesh). I want to make this newsletter as amazing and interesting as we can. If you have an idea,
share it! If you have an opinion share it! I’m looking for new ways to get all ERA members involved
so we can make the newsletter something we all enjoy. Consider it my way of trying to make our
company a little more united. If you have a suggestion, contact me and I will do my best to make this
worthwhile for all of us.
Your Editor at Arms,
Brittany

New Item at the ERA Office!
Take matter into your own hands – literally
– with this plasma ball. Plasma makes up
some 99% of the known universe, so essential to our lives that scientists call it the
Fourth State of matter (after solid, liquid
and gas). Do your own plasma research by
touching the globe and see how you can create enough heat to alter the high frequency
current traveling through the miniature
Tesla coil inside. Plasma in action! Plasma
is created whenever atoms of a gas are heated up, the atoms having so much energy
that they collide and knock around electrons.
Understanding how plasma works is central
to the mission of fusion research at General
Atomics and labs around the world, in pursuit of fusion as a promising new virtually
unlimited clean-energy source for your future.

A Letter from the Editor (again…):
Well, I hope you all have enjoyed the newest version of the ERA Newsletter. If you’ve made it this
far, thank you, thank you, thank you!
Now please, if you have any thoughts or comments, don’t keep it bottled up; let me know! I am far
from a creative person (for those of you that are technical-minded individuals and are also creative,
kudos to you), so I really do appreciate any feedback that you have. Don’t be the person that snickers
to your coworkers and cube-mates about the newsletter, give me your feedback!
Have a great April and you’ll hear more banter from me in the coming months.
