Hi all, I'm Trey Howell, a science fiction author who is trying hard to tell it straight, but my physics skills are poor at best. I have three published works, titled The Man and the Moon, The Station Heist, and Fury of the Mistress, Part One. They're all inter-related. I like to pretend that it's "hard" science fiction, because I try hard to do the math and make sure it's all somewhat plausible, while still having events like train-launched rocket trapeze acts. Right now I'm working on Part Two, and I seem to have cornered myself with some ballistic trajectories that don't make sense, which I posted about in Classical Physics. I will... quite likely be coming back often with more questions. I ain't no rocket scientist, but my father is. Nevertheless, we manage to cause more problems we can solve. Have a nice day!
