Lecturer in geomatics (the maths of positioning in space), with research interests in physics. Author of Physics from the Edge
I have suggested a new cosmological model for inertial mass (called MiHsC) which predicts galaxy rotation without dark matter and cosmic acceleration without dark energy, both without needing any adjustable parameters. MiHsC predicts that inertia is controllable & a lab test of this is on going. MiHsC suggests a new, inertial, way to launch spacecraft. There are articles about my work in New Scientist here, & in phys.org here & here and the Daily Mail here. My blog is: Physics from the Edge and I'm on twitter as @memcculloch.
If you want to know what books inspired me into science, you can watch my interview here.
