- I am an incoming PhD Mechanical Engineering student. In my free time I ask and attempt to answer intriguing questions about how our world works.This blog is my methods, thought processes, and developments in that search. Many great scientists and inventors before us, like Ben Franklin and the Wright Brothers conducted Basement Science with not much more than a genuine interest and a determined will. I hope you join me here, as I conduct Basement Science.
