Greg Fish is an IT consultant with an M.S in computer science, and science blogger whose work appears on BusinessWeek, Discovery News and The Panda’s Thumb, and has been featured on Bad Astronomy, SEED, and io9. He specializes in writing about unusual cutting edge science and promoting skepticism and sound scientific education while writing about robots, aliens, and alien robots.
He was born in the former USSR and lived in the United States for more than ten years, first as a permanent resident and now as a naturalized citizen. Sometimes he will refer to himself in third person. There’s no need for alarm, the problem will just fix itself in due time.
Weird Things isn’t about debunking saints on cheese sandwiches, claims of telekinesis or simply reposting whatever science news come off the wires. It’s about researching big things and looking for the amazing, the unexpected and illuminating facts in a new light. Did an astronomer at SETI catch a brief signal from an alien civilization more than 30 years ago? What does a tabloid writer with a grudge have to do with the New World Order conspiracy theory? What are the odds that creatures from the stars will come to Earth, would they come in peace and what could we do if they didn’t? Is there a hypersonic jet stored in an Area 51 hangar because the USAF doesn’t know what to do with it? These are the questions Weird Things wants to answer..
After all, where’s the fun in reading about another lake monster or alien abduction and always know that in the end, it will be debunked and dismissed for the upteenth time?
