Contrary to popular belief – Science doesn’t have to be the convoluted, tortuous, esoteric affair that so many of us feel it to be. Rather, the Scientific Method is an intrinsically simple thing that all of us use, every day of our lives. It is a methodical and systematic approach to the natural world, and its inherent, natural laws.
I present here, a small collection of my essays (accessible from the ‘MENU’ button at the top of the page) on various, current science topics – each, with an easy-going, unique and fun style of presentation. I hope that they are, at least, the short, digestible, light-hearted ‘lessons‘ that a friend has called them.
Moreover, they are interactively open to commenting, so that this can also be a place to teach, and voice your ideas and opinions on science topics of your choice. Oh – ahh, just one note of CAUTION: Science can be Fun.
No – REALLY!
I hope you’ll enjoy….
Dale Alan Bryant is a writer of general science essays, specializing in Observational Astronomy, Astrobiology, Paleo-anthropology, Human Origins, as well as other, rapidly growing fields, and is currently working on his book of General Science Essays for the General Reader, emphasizing clarity of, otherwise, sometimes difficult scientific topics and ideas. His easy-going, clear, oftentimes humorous manner makes these topics approachable and even palatable, but best of all *understandable* – and, even fun!
He is also a veteran observational astronomer, with a certificate in astrobiology, currently involved with the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, the Breakthrough Initiative Project, Planet Hunters.org, and the Kepler Space Telescope (Kepler Orbiting Observatory) exo-planet databases.
When he’s not writing, he’s probably playing hard-rock guitar licks on his – ‘far-less-than-nominal-but-well-tweaked’ – “First Act” guitar “replica”! He has also been a writer for the American Association of Variable Star Observers (aavso.org) on exo-planets, the search for extraterrestrial life, and the Kepler Space Telescope. The Kepler mission has discovered over 4,500 new planets orbiting stars, other than the Sun, in more than 2,000 newly discovered planetary systems (read: ‘Solar systems’).
