I studied Chemistry at university and then spent over thirty years in classrooms across England teaching almost anything but Chemistry, including Photography, Communications Skills, General Science, Computing, and Information and Communications Technology.
In the 1990s I spent ten years writing abstracts of chemical patents. These were distributed to research scientists by subscription. Articles of mine have been published in magazines and I have written assignments used for assessing Communications Skills for a major international Examination Board. About twelve years ago I began writing science fiction.
What next? Complete the fourth novel-length book in the SF series following on from 'Passengers to Sentience', 'Passengers to Zeta Nine' and 'Passengers: Revelations'.

Very brief, with a nice concept, though the midstream POV shift threw me off. Perhaps a section break was in order, though it might be too short of a piece for that. Watch out for passive descriptions in the opening paragraphs.
