About Jim Cline

Jim is partially retired from a career mainly in hands-on electronics development, and is a hobbyist-enthusiast creator of some advanced space transportation integrated concepts with applications, such as Centristation and the kinetic-centrifugal supported KESTS to GEO hoop-shaped transportation structure between equatorial ground and GEO, that he has presented and had published as part of high tech space conferences; but found that aerospace has snubbed it all due to its own laid out plans for space development based on privatizing conventional rocket launch systems; so he has also written his concepts as background for his high-tech science fiction adventure novels and short stories, which is more fun than writing technical papers, anyway. Now lives frugally in Ephrata, WA, USA, with two parakeets and a computer, still doing volunteer work; having done his best despite a mostly thankless humanity. Horse to water and all that.
