I've been interested in computers, science, & technology since I was old enough to learn. I started my love-affair with learning with trains. That then matured into learning the science behind the operations of steam locomotives. Simultaneously, I developed a strong interest in the space program; I can remember being devastated by the loss of Challenger... even though I would only be turning five years old that coming July. By the time i was seven, I was determined to make the trip to Space Camp, a goal I finally saved up for in 1991.
Space technology science lead to an interest in what is known as astrophysics.. the study of stars, their formation, evolution and death and their affects on the structure of surrounding space. This then lead to an interest in nuclear physics as a result of the subatomic reactions at the cores of stars and then into Quantum Mechanics as I studied things like black holes and quasars.
Today I still love to learn. I listen to podcasts on computers, science & technology. My love of trains has been supplemented by my love of history. This has become an interest in Industrial Archaeology.
