Kill Devil Hills-Kitty Hawk to the Moon

Only 66 Years Separated The First Successful Plane Flights And Moon Landings. Imagine what’s next.

In my life time, I would very much hope scientists would find the answers to the mysterious substance known as Dark Matter,  the theory that has eluded astronomers for decades. Physicists have been trying for years to determine the nature of these matter particles, which do not emit light and are therefore invisible to the human eye.

During 1971, in high school, we debated black holes in science class.  Recently, my 8 year old granddaughter asked me what I was reading.  Sean Carrol’s, The Big Picture was on my night stand. In one chapter, black holes were described. Chloe began to explain black holes to me with detail not your average 8 year old would. Now that’s a proud moment.  She is a prolific reader as well as writer of some great ‘scary stories’. She also loves to write scripts for our videos. Much thanks to Atlantis Charter School. Although I hope my love of nature, science and photography had some impression.

From an earlier post: Chloe using Microscopes

“The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.”




Are you a vegetarian.

Are you a vegetarian, you might be after this.  Mice will nest and scavenge anywhere. Late one night we opened the lid on the Grill. As Jim Nabors would say,  “surprise, surprise surprise” .  4 little guys scampering about inside the grill looking for leftovers.  So, I couldn’t grab my camera quick enough to show you the little bastards. So, set up a trap, and set camera in the area. Only a few hours later,  here is one of them. So, how long has this been going on. And low and behold, mouse droppings  inside of grill. We used the grill almost every day in the summer.  Now, it’s just me using the grill. After I showed the video,  Everybody uses the stove.
