Alduce me to interlow myself

I'm a first year geography major, and, like so many others here, I'm facinated with space and I love gadgets.

Re: Alduce me to interlow myself

Come to think of it, I've also got a "guilt by association" fascination by medical imaging. I'm dating someone who's doing a PhD in in cancer imagine and some of the images she shows me are fascinating.

I don't know a damned thing about it, other than that it's pretty cool to look at.

Re: Alduce me to interlow myself

I've always been fascinated with the stars and with space travel, and by extension, with much of science. I wanted to be an Aerospace Engineer when I entered an engineering magnet high school, but quickly realized I wasn't the best at math and physics....so today I am a Sophomore pursuing a degree in Writing and Linguistics, with a minor in History, but always reading up on the latest news in science and technology!

Hello, I dropped by because hey it's a new forum, gotta check it out...

Might have questions every now and then to put to the experts. Hope you know a lot about space science.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hi all,

I've liked science, even though I'm a business administration major. I think what really interested me into science was last year when I took a Psychology class and we talked about so many differen scientific theories such as Darwin and evolution, Pavlov and behavioral models, Frued and the whole concept of dreaming and psychoanalysis.

I've also always been facinated in space exploration, which is probably why I'm a fan of Star Trek and sci-fi in general, and wish there would be a private orginization to fund space exploration. We need it, not just because exploration is important, but because in a time of crisis, we need something to look foward to like the moon landing in 1969. On that note, america was a unified nation and we need something like that again.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Welcome 1001001, its nice to see someone in this kind of forum with a real education But I have to say I'm kind of 50/50 when it comes to science and technology. Granted I love all it can do for us and it is fansinating to see how everything in nature works in a clear logical way but man all those explanations can get boreing. However I do have an imagination to relax me when science becomes to much.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hi, all!

I'm a huge huge fan of the golden days of NASA (though I think its current state is one of misery and stagnation) and I'm a big supporter of privately-developed spaceflight. I'm also a computer/general technology nerd.

In terms of science, I am decent at astronomy, evolution, and basic physics. I'm not so good at biology, though I do think that the theories on evolution make sense, and I like genetics theory. I haven't touched chemistry in God knows how long.

Oh, and while I'm not an expert on dinosaurs or ancient extinct species, I do enjoy discussing extinction-level events. I wonder what that says about me...

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hi all! Cool new forum!

I'm in the social sciences, myself. I teach anthropology and archaeology at the university level and my specialty is medieval archaeology (it seemed like a good idea at the time). I'm interested in humans--how we work, why we do what we do, how we process information. How have we experienced the world in the past and how do we experience it now?

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

I'm liking this new forum!

I teach mainly English, History and Geography at the high school level, but I am also teaching a basic Science course this semester-right now just finishing up biology-and I love teaching the space unit...might do that one after March Break

Love Sci and Tech in my every day life...cool new threads to read!

:thumbsup:

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

I have a Master Degree in English, specialized in Northern American civilizations and literatures, with a minor in Linguistics (gotta love ye old English, the Great Vowel Shift etc.). I was briefly an English Teacher but kids today are real pain in the ass. And I was like it's either me or them. So I quit.
As far as I can remember, I always watched the sky at night with a feeling as if I was looking at home... If a lot of things hadn't happened in my teens, maybe, I say maybe, I would have taken Astrophysics at College. But then again, shit happens...

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Hi all. Early on I was fast-tracked to become Earth's evil overlord, though for the time being budgetary constraints force a diversion of funding from maintaining my army of flying monkeys to techno-droid R&D, as the monkeys had difficulties adapting to helmet displays with built-in GPS interface.

I became interested in astronomy very early, when I gazed up and imagined all the potential worlds to conquer. Sadly, our space flight capabilities have badly lagged my appetite for oppressive totalitarian rule, but hopefully new advances in technology will hasten my inevitable galactic conquest.

As for more pedestrian pursuits, I've ground a few telescope mirrors, which helps distract me from torturing my hunchback apprentices, and figured out sword physics, which was once well understood (1600's) but become lost in mumbo-jumbo. The correct answer, as almost always, is that F=ma.

Re: Allow Myself to Introduce...Myself

Well this is the first time i am posting in here in months. Looks like TBBS admins have been quite busy as I can see a bunch of new forums that wasn't here before. This forum looks great as I always thought this place lacked a real science/tech forum. Anyways I am about to graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Aerospace Engineering so cheers! I am also planning to go to graduate school to endure 2 or 4 more years of aerospace engineering . The good news is that I am still not tired of this stuff.
