About IonMars


My name is Roy Paul and I grew up in Raymond, Washington, a small lumber town in the Pacific Northwest. I was born in 1941, just 30 years after the town was founded and named after the first rural mail carrier, L.V. Raymond. Today, after obtaining several college degrees, publishing articles, receiving two patents, and having many and varied careers in different places I can look back and appreciate the stimulation that comes from a semi-primitive environment. I have frequently been the “idea man” on a team or just the developer of my own approaches to old problems. I have maintained a life-long interest in space exploration and I am burdened with many ideas that I need to pass on to others. You have an interest similar to mine, so this website is for you.
