Something to say

The Double JetScience and engineering provide a platform for logical deduction and  in some circumstances can help the understanding of the very complex world that we now live in.

The section starts with a short pdf on the scientific and creative mind.

An introduction to the scientific creative mind

The following parts of this  web site section includes a route to being a successful academic, photographs which deserve to be thought of as artistic, movies clips that also have an artistic twist and  a  fiction “High Tension”, adventure novel within the university world of  scientific discovery and big business.
