  6. Wade H


    United States - Tests: 1

    I write. National Public Radio, USA Today, The American Institute of Physics, and The Smithsonian have published my work. I've prepared patents, developed instructions for computer users, worked at Ehow, and published an Amazon Bestseller that hit #1 in astronomy, surpassing even Stephen Hawking's books. I started in the computer field. After developing training materials and publishing newsletters, I worked in Washington and Tokyo in the patent field. I specialized in semiconductors and computers. Then I spent eight years in public policy. Always a Star Trek fan, I published a way of reaching Alpha Centauri, our nearest star. I co-authored the paper with a friend from the Peace Corps. I've been writing about life in Jupiter's moon Europa recently. My electrical engineering studies at George Washington University helped me understand the nature of Europa. The electrical field data collected by NASA's Galileo probe prove that this moon of Jupiter holds an ocean. Unfortunately, many still don't understand that. I hope to promote exploration of this moon so we can confirm life. I also hold a law degree from George Washington University and an information systems degree from Georgia.
