New outlook

I have several  new series I plan to begin working on next week.

"WHAT WOULD HAPPEN..." will focus on mainly materials science experimentation. I will take you through most of the steps in setting up the experiment, and follow through with tests on the material.

"SLO MO MONDAY" will be a segment featuring scenarios, likely an unnoticed every day occurrence for many, featured in slow motion.

"LET'S TALK ABOUT:" will focus on materials and some lesser known devices: their properties, their uses, their reactions.

In the coming weeks I intend to make these regular postings. There will be other series coming in the near future as well with a focus on the broader physical sciences, optics, astronomy, and mechanical engineering.

Places and people worth following

Inspiration never occurs in a vacuum. As a creative person, I take inspiration from an enormously wide range of places. At the broadest spectrum, my interests are in design. Design is an interesting word which covers essentially all qualities of creativity. Cursed or not, my interest in design is limitless. Most of my information intake is through Newsblur, an RSS aggregator. On newsblur, I currently follow news posts from nearly 300 sources on a regular basis. I certainly won't list them all but the sources I find most interesting are listed below.

Overdue Update

It has been a long time since my last update. I have numerous projects to post about in the future. As for now, I wanted to post a link to my research source page on Wikipedia (link). I haven't pursued space technology research for many years now but the links are quite valuable to all realms of science and technology research. I can tell by the page view statistics that many other users find it quite useful as well.

My future intentions with this blog is to have at least one post per week. I have about 30 projects at this time so I have a lot of content to post.
