The field of Citizen Science is at logger-heads with the official governmental explanations of what the lunar photographs show. These discrepancies have alienated both the layman’s and the “professionals” interest in the subject, due to grossly exaggerated and dubious claims of proof by both sides of the difficult investigation.
Sturm has, and continues to, developed custom and unique techniques to examine the photographic data in order to narrow the “proof gap” between the opposing views. Using his techniques to reexamine the meaning and purpose of these geometric shapes on the lunar surface, he passionately seeks to answer the question if we were ever alone in the universe.
Andy Weir grew up reading classic science fiction such as the works of Arthur C. Clarke and Isaac Asimov. At the age of 15, he began working as a computer programmer for Sandia National Laboratories. He studied computer science at UC San Diego, although he did not graduate. He worked as a programmer for several software companies, including AOL and Blizzard, where he worked on Warcraft 2. Weir began writing science fiction in his 20s and published work on his website for years.
Weir is best known for his first published novel The Martian. He wrote the book to be as scientifically accurate as possible and his writing included extensive research into orbital mechanics, conditions on Mars, the history of manned spaceflight, and botany. Originally published as a free serial on his website, some readers requested he make it available on Kindle. First sold for 99 cents, the novel made it to the Kindle bestsellers list. Weir was then approached by a literary agent and sold the rights of the book to Crown Publishing Group. The print version of the novel debuted at #12 on The New York Times bestseller list. The Wall Street Journal called the novel “the best pure sci-fi novel in years”. It has been made into a film starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain, to be released October 2, 2015. Weir is working on his second novel initially titled Zhek. He describes it as “a more traditional sci-fi novel. It has aliens, telepathy, faster-than-light travel, etc.” He is also a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects like relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. The Martian is his first novel.
