Taking things apart to fix them

These kinds of things have been my friend for many years. For longer than I can remember I've been taking things apart. I've not necessarily fixed them, but it's certainly given me clues to how things go together and work. So when some of the keys on the phone don't work, I have two choices:... Continue Reading →

Saturn’s Ring Details on Display

The screen went blank for a moment as all the visual sensors were over loaded. McKinley turned to Neila. "Now would be a good time!" Neila was already on it, the... Continue Reading →

The Spitfire

While most aircraft have a military purpose, I've always loved the engineering and the wonder that went into. The Spitfire wasn't... Continue Reading →
