Dear Barbara,

Good to hear from you, I hope all is will with you.  I retired last year and now travel even more. I just got back from Namibia, Botswana, and Zambia with 7000 pictures. It will take a while to put them online.
Cheers, Guenther

Story
Tagline
Retired, traveling the world.
Introduction
I am from the Baby Boomer generation. I grew up in Germany; in 1984 I emigrated to the USA, and have been here since then. I like to fly aerobatics in my Pitts S-2A and travel to exotic destinations.  I am an astronomer by education and worked on various subjects like Interplanetary Dust, Age Determinations on Lunar Samples, and Space-based Gamma Ray Detectors.  I have extensive experience in programming in various languages, including Perl, C, and Assembler.

Northeast Aerobatics Champion in Unlimited in 1999, 2008 Award for Services to Astronomy - Royal Astronomical Society (RAS), 2001 Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics Division Award - Special Libraries Association (SLA). Asteroid 69287 was named after me in recognition for my services to astronomy.
