Why write science themed pony stories? · 12:08am Dec 20th, 2013

Nice to see a good level of interest in my latest work, Rock Farms and Nuclear Reactors. Please take a look if you haven't already done so. In this story Pinkie Pie teaches Twilight Sparkle some basic nuclear physics. This is my third science themed pony story, following The Art of Rainbow Engineering, and

State of the Science Communicator · 12:14am Jan 28th, 2019

Apologies for not posting so much over the last two months. I have not been so active on Fimfiction for a while for various reasons. The past year has been difficult in more than one way. But I am hoping to be more active for 2019.

It seems a good time to reflect on what I am doing.

“The Physics of My Little Pony” - ? · 9:27pm Nov 9th, 2013

Eighteen years ago, theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss wrote, The Physics of Star Trek, an explanation, of sorts, of the speculative science behind warp drives, inertial dampers and matter transfer beams; as often as not explaining why such things just wouldn't work. The book was an unexpected best-seller, which surprised the world of popular science writing. No one expected such a nerdy title to have such wide appeal. But turned out plenty of readers wanted to know about the workings

I won something! · 10:42am Feb 24th, 2019

This post is excessively self-congratulatory. Should I try to be as cool as Rainbow Dash?

Or should I declare myself the Greatest and Most Powerfullest physics-themed pony fanfiction writer in Oxford University?

Fancy writing a short story for 30$ per 1k and know your way around physics?
This has to be one of the coolest 'contests' so far.

Evaluation of Polar Vortex Reader Questionnaire · 9:00pm Jul 16th, 2019

Now catching up with the tasks I intended to do months ago. Here is a report on the reader questionnaire for Polar Vortex. Thanks to everyone who completed that. Sorry this is a bit technical and written for science communication evaluation nerds (I have done courses on this). I’ll write something fun, with Pinkie Pie in it, next week...

What the Hay is the Higgs Boson? · 11:38pm Feb 2nd, 2014

Many years ago, I was attending a science communication lecture, in which the lecturer threw a hypothetical challenge to the class: to write an article on the Higgs Boson for the Daily Sun, the notorious, best-selling British tabloid, known for snappy headlines, a lack of political correctness, and the dubious veracity of its articles.

3D Dreams: A Tale of a Science Communication Adventure with the Welsh Animation Industry, which didn’t happen · 10:56am Jul 29th, 2017

I’ve posted a personal story on my Particle Gadgeteering blog, “3D Dreams: A Tale of a Science Communication Adventure with the Welsh Animation Industry, which didn’t happen”. This might interest anyone curious about animation production. This is also a sort-of prequel to my involvement with Fimfiction as it got me into animations and thinking about ways to mix fiction and science.
