Let me personally welcome you to explora!

Having been an avid, self-taught science geek my whole life, it’s a thrill to bring my passion to a larger forum. Being a child of the early space program and the first bits of genetic research, my heart belongs to astronomy and evolution.

These days, my more urgent passion is ensuring the health of this planet for many thousands of generations of all species to come. I believe we all need to keep educating and inspiring ourselves to be up to this critical task. And I will be learning and finding inspiration right along with you!

I’m looking forward to bringing other science journalists and writers on-board to fill in the areas I miss so you’ll have the broadest possible range of science news.

Again, welcome to explora. I look forward to this incredible journey together!
