I've been using Blender (and Terragen) for 10 years. Much of this time has been spent creating epic space scenes, but I've also dabbled in historical imagery and organic modelling from time to time. I've also developed Python scripts to employ Blender as a visualisation tool for galaxy simulations. Recently I've been working on using Blender directly in my own work.by enabling it to view 3D, volumetric FITS files in realtime. And I still enjoy modelling spaceships.
I spent two and a half years experiencing life in Puerto Rico and the USA, where I dealt with doing science during a management change at Arecibo Observatory (the first time in its 48 year history). As well as surviving life with a bunch of irate scientists, I've also learned to deal with hurricanes, the unexpected theft of manhole covers, and even how to survive without the internet (but only just).
