Lockheed Martin - Helping the Future Arrive

Oh, what a …

At Lockheed Martin, helping the future arrive is what we do. Because we solve the great problems of our times. We create the innovative technologies that define eras.

The great problems of our times is a joke, right? I’d like to see a fusion reactor and routine flights to mars, for sure. But a moving autonomous laser weapon shooting a planes out of the sky??? Btw, nobody wants to work on your transparent flatscreens with glowing touch interafaces.

(Best part of the video is the woman looking into the hotter than hot plasma of the fusion reactor. I want those glasses!)

Two marks, two simultaneous dreams, eleven dreamers, and a hell of a lot of baggage. Time to call in a few favors — and did she mention the job involves inception?

Guys. GUYS. It’s done.

"Why am I doing all the work?" Stiles demands. Derek just smiles, content.

"I’m going to hog the sleeping bag and eat all the marshmallows and you’re not going to look at me with your judgy-eyebrows…"
