My primary interest is as a space enthusiast and my end goal is to use my experience with 3D printing and the scientific method, together with my knowledge of Immunology/Biological systems to implement space-based aquaponics in a way that will both provide for environmental control inside space habitats as well as produce food (fruit/veg/fish) for astronaughts.  By doing this we can achieve meaningful improvements in manned spaceflight, leading to settlement of the inner solar system (or as I call it “incliptic”).

Total Solar Eclipses 2015-2024 

Created January 2014


I was absolutely stunned when I visited Cairns in November 2012 and saw totality there.  This page is for planning future trips.  Here are the total solar Eclipses for the next several years, as Gif files.  I hope to get to at least one of them :)
