Space, Asteroids, Software

Something that involves the three has done more than grab my attention.

If you didn't already know, I'm a massive nerd and spend most of my time reading about anything and everything or watching doccumentaries. What ever I'm doing it always comes down to science, and I can't get enough of it. I love all things science, but after seeing on the news the new developments in a field of science that I have thought about, discussed and been excited for.

The prospect of mining earth rare materials from asteroids. In Space.

I'm serious, Planetary Resources plan to launch themselves further along their pursuit of knowledge and resource, near 2015. But what does this have to do with me? Well after reading a lot into the project and into the company, which is a public sector one at that, i've found out there are jobs available for Primary Flight Software and Ground Software engineer. Amazing, it's a dream. I know, but what a job that would be.

I even went to the extent of sending them a cheeky email for some advice. Whether or not i get a reply is debatable, but i haven't been excited like this for a potential career path to attempt in a while. Time to get my head into some books and excite myself some more.

new developments.

I have a bit of trouble you see? I'm far to much of a lurker these days and take very little time to get myself out there on the Internet; but i was checking some things on godaddy.com and decided to purchase the domain: www.lukeclifford.co.uk and why not? I spent a few hours bashing together a little site of my own. (by all means, take a look)

It got me thinking, I have so many ideas in my head, and so many plans for the future. Things I want to achieve and things that I want to do. Yet I don't find myself doing anything now. I find it so easy to sit and read, learn about a language but I can never just find a project to apply it to.

If you can't see where this is going, this is in a way my own personal promise to myself to start developing more, programming more and not lurking like I'm so in the routine of doing.
I want to make some web apps, and I want to write more about the things that interest me. Artificial Intelligenmce, Evolutionary Computation, Bioinformatics, Physics & Astronomy.

If you keep checking here, and on my website lukeclifford.co.uk, I'll hopefully have filled my little site out with more things in my portfolio.

That's the aim anyway.
Wish me luck.
