Science Projects

I know I'm a professional scientist, but I really enjoy discovering things, even though I can often read it in a book. I often tell people I have a disease: I think any experiment that won a Nobel Prize before 1970 ought to be doable in my basement!

Here are some of the projects I've been engaged in, not necessarily along my normal research stream.

Astronomical Observing
