Adam was born in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia in 1970. His first memory of TV is watching the BBC documentary on the “Viking” landings and (black & white) episodes of “Space 1999”. At age 9 he learnt of a star-probe named “Daedalus”, and was given a little book, “Road to the Stars” by Iain Nicholson. A teenage dream career in space-probe design suffered a few hiccups along the way – the “Challenger” disaster, going to University hoping to do Physics, but finishing a B.Sc in Psychology. Since then Adam has retaught himself mathematics & physics, web-published polemics against Creationism, written an essay on SETI for the late Chris Boyce, and semi-completed an Engineering/Computing degree. Currently he is writing on a broad variety of interstellar & SETI topics while changing day-jobs. Adam is on the board of Directors for Icarus Interstellar.
