Default I was gone applying for college, now I'm in and back.

Well after two years procrastinating/deciding if I was sure I went ahead with it.

I have at least 6 years of GI Bill, but they have gone to 8 for Veterans after Dr.

Montana offers 6 more years ON TOP of the GI Bill after it runs out under the Veterans Education Benefit.

My local community college here on the Blackfoot Rez...

Offers up through a masters in cellular biology.

They do not offer an associates in maths... But they partner with the University in Missoula.

I already have trig, calc, graphing, and etc down solid, I had one of the math teachers from the U in Missoula for a Veterans Upward Bound course along with an English teacher, I was the only one enrolled had them to myself. My English is a bit above what she sees among students.

The U offers a bioengineering course with genetic option.

They also have a math program up through masters in maths, astrophysics, and theoretical physics, engineering degrees are handled by the U of M.

Currently the GI Bill pays 100% to all Purple Heart vets and offers more support for students in STEM studies under the new "Forever GI Bill going into effect this fall.

This amount is more than 4x the tuition cost at the SKC I'm enrolled at... I need to spend it wisely, why not a few college level STEM related hobbies and projects....


I have been playing with an HHO generator, exploding water balloons of HHO gas. I have been soldering electronics, forced my windows computer to host Kali Linux so Kali can turn off all the spy/report/diagnostic/bloatware on windows and run both win and linux programs at the same time on a graphic desktop.

Now I am looking at pulse jets, kero/lox rockets, ramjets and turbojets of the home built type on youtube and digging through parts I have lying around.



That brings us to today. I built an open air supersonic wind tunnel using my 2 Watt modified "Thor" handheld as the point light source.

(Not my vid, just one I learned how to build the "tunnel" from)

I ran out of canned air playing with "shock cones" and different tiny items in the airstream before I thought to take pictures.

I have an idea, where I reverse engineer and scale back the SR-71s engine nacelles.

While working on that I will also be working on a "Toroidal Aerospike" (Doughnut with rocket thrusters on outside of rim) Rocket engine with the intent to fit it on sort of a ball joint cowling on the back of the scaled SR-71 engine.

For now I'm getting ready to order a $200 tig welder so I can weld up a pulse jet prototype I'm going to try to run on HHO gas...

Followed by a 3 d printer so I can try some shapes for use in a turboram/scram jet engine design.

I can cut the radial channels of my design concepts, into a 2D flat plane (plexi, shape, plexi) and just push in air in with a compressor up to Mach 3, then measure the shock cones and wave features provided by the areo-oreo.

So I'm off to get some more canned air... I'll make a new thread when I have cool pictures to post.

It's good to be back.
