First off thanks for the membership! I'll start by saying I have no formal experience in any STEM fields but I am none the less an avid follower of science and technology. My addiction to space has grown in recent years culminating in a trip to Florida where my wife and I spent a day at the Kennedy Space Center. Needless to say I was completely floored by the experience and it has made a lasting impression on my life. After that trip I can confidently say my life's goal has been to enter the space industry in anyway possible. Seeing the impact of past and present pioneers in the industry is both humbling and inspiring. My main focus is to absorb as much information as possible and network with as many like minded people as I can find. Although my scientific knowledge is limited I do have mental acuity and hopefully this it is enough to participate in the SFIA community. I am currently in a full time career however I'd be eager to volunteer my time to help grow the channel and community (if possible). As for my personal interests I've become very partial to two specific topics, Fission Fragment (or "Dusty Plasma" rockets), and Space Habitation technology utilizing lunar regolith accompanied with artificial gravity (centrifugal). The former has been induced by an idea to re purpose reactor to produce larger quantities of Americium 242m for use in high speed space transportation. Based on the research I've done it would require a substantial investment in nuclear infrastructure to realize considering 242m's difficulty to isolate, which as I understand stems from its excellent cross section and low critical mass (doesn't survive long in a reactor). The later is a more practical "short" term goal ( no radioactive exhaust, superconductors, or treaty violations) which involves collecting lunar/martian regolith for use as a construction materiel in space. The full spectrum of my idea is hard to convey over a keyboard so hopefully in the future I'll be able to capture someones attention in a face to face or voice chat (like I said I'm not a degree holder). I try my best to stay ground and not get carried away although my imagination can be rabid. Well that's about it from me, once again thank for the invite.
