I already blog regularly about science topics at writescience.wordpress.com (go check it out!), so why start this blog? The impetus to start this blog was my acquisition of a small, underwater robot known as an OpenROV. I decided I had to have a place to record my efforts to build and operate one. Over time, I expect we will delve into other things I do (build telescopes, fly high-altitude balloons, rocketry), but my ROV is the beginning. I expect all things being equal, it won’t be as polished and clear as I try to be at my other blog; I think of this more as “my diary of imagination and adventure.” I hope you enjoy riding alongside.
