A 44 year old Husband and father I've held a fascination with space and the night sky since I was very young.
Nursing a slight Star Wars obsession and a telescope I love to look at the majesty and beauty of the universe we all share.
I have a great interest in, and am lukcy to be working in, the field of technology and it is my hope that someday during the future I can have the opportunity to go into space, to look back at our fragile earth.
Even though I wasn't born until well after the historic Space Race between the Soviets and the United States I have a fascination with the pioneering spirit that was abundent on both sides.
It is my hope that as a species we can put away our petty rivalries and truly be one people, the inhabidents of this beautful blue and green marble.
