Science – here is why I love it so

NASA... I love them. For exploring, and for sharing what they discover on their journeys. Even more importantly i love the fact that since it is in the public domain citizen filmmakers and scientists can make use of those images in unique and in this case wondrous ways.

Flying over Mars (in 3D)

The thought of one day being able to see Mars out the window each morning fills me with hope for the human race - the only race on our planet. To ensure the survival of our species in the long run we need to get 'off the rock' on which we were born. As the... Continue Reading →

We have a new member of the zoo

Honouring Ballarat’s Vietnam Veterans 2016

It's been a long haul for many ANZAC Vietnam veterans. Returning from serving their country in a foreign land, after fighting and dying for reasons not their own. On their return many found themselves anathema to the people they had fought for and served. Little support on the home front and less from the government who'd... Continue Reading →

New Scale Model Article – The Junkyard Dog

Overview There are two reasons for this post. Firstly I'm partway through the build of a 1:48th scale F-111E fighter-bomber. Secondly I'm also working on an edX course from the University of Queensland - UQx's Write101x! English Grammar and Style. Who doesn't want to write and use the English language with more flair?
