Who are we? We are YOU!

We are dads, moms, grandparents, teachers, kids, scientists, engineers, and space geeks. We are those who reach out into the Universe to seek answers to those deep questions: Where did we come from, and are we alone?

We are wowed and awed by the discovery of new things, the mysteries of science, the innovations of technology, the bravery of astronauts, and by the stunning images sent back to us from other worlds.

We know that space exploration is vital to humankind...and it is just plain fun!

My Ultima Thule snowman art

When the first clear images came in of Ultima Thule, wags quickly called it a “cosmic snowman,” with its two round bodies joined in the middle, looking like it was made with dirty snow. That struck a chord with me and I decided to create a digital cartoon along those lines.

December 27, 2018

I am a simple Social Studies teacher with a passion and optimism for eventual human space exploration and discovery. When I was young, I was interested in science fiction and future of mankind that included the discovery of other worlds and intelligent life beyond our planetary borders. As I have grown, that interest has evolved into a more enlightened appreciation for real science and the promise that it shows for the future. Although my field of study and my career will most likely never result in me being on the frontline of scientific discovery, I do hope that I can ... more »
