About

I'm a science teacher on the Red Planet, which is pretty boring most of the time.

There's not much in the way of topography on Mars, or physics in the low gravity, or chemistry when the atmosphere mostly consists of rust. Even studying the anatomy of homo martians loses its draw once you realize that they're not that different from homo sapiens after all.

On slow days, I look up at the stars, and stare at the slowly revolving Earth, and wonder what science would look like if someone screwed with the planet. Say they went back in time, or all humans evolved an extra head. Then what?

When I'm not teaching, I write these funky thoughts down on Worldbuilding.SE to mess with the users' heads.

Some topics you'll usually find me on:

  • How to apply human biology to alien creatures
  • Questions related to evolution of new species
  • The use of genetics and disease for discrimination or warfare
  • Adaptation for survival on unfriendly planets
  • Manipulation of chemistry for any purpose
  • Strange applications of physics in outer space

Once again, I'm a science teacher. I got a degree in human biology from the University of Hellas Basin and I'm currently studying medicine at the School of Medicine at Olympus Mons. You can generally take my word for anything science-related. (Unless, of course, I mistakenly confused your species with my own homo martians. Which happens sometimes). If it's not science, though... take my word with a grain of sand. I'm bad at math. I'll usually avoid those questions.
