    Hi, I've always been interested in science in general although I am a chemist by profession. Graduated from the University of Sussex many years ago and have been involved in chemistry ever since. However I have a wide and general interest in science and in scientific method. I'm a fairly keen atheist and rationalist sceptic and I enjoy a good robust debate on just about any aspect of (hard) science. I work in India for six months of the year and in the other six months I split my time between Totnes in Devon where I have a home and the Ardeche region of Southern France where my partner lives. When I'm not helping Indians understand the concept of scientific method, I'm out taking photographs and hunting for interesting plants and animals.

    You look like a busy guy, many notable hobbies. Wish i ever brought myself to taking up photography. But i'm still young, i guess i can still learn ..
    Growing up, i marveled at star-trek's science, and ignored the perfect society. Now, i try to ignore their science, and marvel at the society.

    Imagine, being able to create matter out of thin air, and not coming up with using drones for boarding hostile ships. Or using drones to defend your own ship. Heck, using drones to block energy attacks, counterattack or for surveillance. Unless, of course, they are nano-machines in your blood, which is a billion times more complex..

    Hi there and welcome to the forum.
