Revisiting An Old Friend – ACME Aerospace

Posted on

Back in 2006, my final project was to come up with a campaign for a fictional company. Since I had been recently enamored with the space shuttle and all things involving rockets, it was an easy choice on what to go with. My generic company name was ACME Aerospace but darn it, I should have […]

Sure Fire Way To Tell Diet From Regular

Posted on

I just wanted to give a preview of the next video I’ll be making. As much as I want to make videos about debunking flat earth claims, eh, there’s plenty of those. I’d rather divert my energy to other things. Have you ever gotten a couple of drinks at the drive through and they weren’t […]

Falcon Heavy – A Roaring Success

Posted on

So, this week was an exciting one in the realm of rockets. That happens to be a favorite realm of mine. I’ve been waiting for Falcon Heavy to launch for years. The last time something that powerful launched from the Cape would have been Space Shuttle in 2011. As you can imagine, a lot of […]

Spot The Station

Posted on

I was recently asked by a local magazine The Kitchen Draw to write an article about science and/or space. I wrote two articles and the space one won out. It’s about how to spot the International Space Station.  I couldn’t find it on the site as it was print only but I figured I’d post […]
