Meet the Maker: Noah Rasor

Noah Rasor is a maker who may specialize in motorized creations (walking go karts, offroad couches, 40mph shopping carts just to name a few), but that didn't stop him from turning aluminum scrap into a part for Project Egress!

About: Noah Rasor identifies firstly as a maker, but also as an educator, engineer, mad scientist, and tinkerer. He specializes in motorized creations (walking go karts, offroad couches, 40mph shopping carts), but also dabbles in siege engines and other creations (like a 22,000 rpm turbine powered pencil sharpener). He tinkers at his home shop, but also is a fab lab enthusiast, user, teacher, and manager. He documents his builds on his youtube channel and on his website.

Artist statement: “I’ve always been fascinated with space… mainly in the fact that we are infinitesimally small and that you can see so many stars, moons, and planets that (for almost all of human history) have been completely impossibly unreachable. The Apollo missions were a tremendous step towards humans exploring the cosmos. To be selected as one of the few makers who were tasked with building a part of the 50th anniversary recreation of the Apollo hatch was incredibly amazing. I am super stoked to be a part of celebrating mankind’s extraterrestrial endeavors!”
