In Ancient Greek mythology, Daedalus was called a skillful inventor, craftsman, and artist. His many inventions made him synonymous with skill and excellence. He is portrayed as a symbol of wisdom, knowledge, and power.
The most famous of the Daedalus legends describes him as exiled or imprisoned on an island with his son. In order to escape, Daedalus crafted wings for himself and his son Icarus from feathers and wax. Before their flight to freedom, Daedalus warned Icarus not to fly too high, because the heat of the sun would melt the wax. Icarus famously disregarded this advice, and even as their flight of escape from the island was successful, Icarus was tempted by hubris and flew too close to the sun. Although the legend says Daedalus escaped, Icarus plunged to his death.
Daedalus was a craftsman that knew how to effectively build the means of flight, and also had the skills to identify hazards and manage risks.
Aerospace development is a team sport. Not just aerospace engineers, but the expertise of many diverse disciplines are necessary to build the future of flight - making our planet seem smaller and other planets a bit closer. We must be like Daedalus, able to not only creatively solve the challenges of flight but also apply risk management that allows confident progress without risk aversion.
