Good Evening!
I am W. D. Graham, an editor on the English Wikipedia, which is the only Wikimedia project that I regularly contribute to. I have been editing Wikipedia since 2005.

I am primarily interested in spaceflight, rocketry and space science, however I also have a passing interest in aviation, military history and computer programming.

Upcoming rocket launches
