Achieving the Impossible

The Moon used to be a byword for "impossible" until the historic flight of Apollo 11.  NASA accepted the challenge outlined in President John F. Kennedy's famous 1962 speech to go to the moon before the close of the decade and delivered the impossible on schedule.   On July 20, 1969 two American astronauts, Neil [...]

Navigating Middle Earth

I’m a pretty big J.R.R. Tolkien fan, but most of the books published under his name are pretty complex and inaccessible.  After readers finish The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, which tell the story of the end of the Third Age of Middle Earth, the natural place to go seems to be The [...]

Great Backyard Bird Count

Ornithology, in spite of having such a long name, is bound to remain a traditional, oral and emphirical craft.  You can't have a correspondence course in birds.  You have to go out to them in person, with a companion to start you by experience and word of mouth, and then you have got to find [...]
