Welcome to the forum.
As others have said, read all you can here and you will be building your own laser in no time.

Welcome!

Just a small English lesson ;)

The article "an" is used when the following letter "sounds like a vowel", so it's correct to use it before a mute "h", but not before an "h" that you pronounce (this has a name I can't seem to remember now).

So, it's "an helicopter", but "a homemade", see the difference?

@English speakers, please correct me if I'm wrong xD

Yours,
Albert
