I'm a doctor of astrophysics. The title did not come to me in a conventional way, rather it was approved by a judge at my request. So the darn moniker is Dr. R. D. Charbonneau A.Ph.D., the "A" for Autodidactic. I study the physics of stars and the origin of the universe. I write Sci-Fi, Tech, Scientific, patent, poetry, copy and lyrics, the latter associated with musical skills. I illustrate, paint portraits and murals, especially Tromps. I invent... pretty much anything. I've devised a system that allowed me to predict nearly all the solar flares this year. I predicted in 1999 a meso layer in the sun. By 2005 SOHO proved it. C'est moi!
