About this Website
This is the personal website of Ernst Galutschek, for the purpose of sharing video clips, photos and other content with friends and anyone else who may be interested - nothing more; nothing less.
As I am frequently asked by visitors to my website, may I briefly introduce myself:
I currently live in the south of Germany where I work as a systems engineer for complex optical systems. During my career I have worked in a number of different environments ranging from oceanography and geosciences to fusion research or medical physics.
In recent years I have lived in Woods Hole, MA, and Oak Ridge, TN. You might also have met me during research visits to Culham near Oxford in England, or also at Gießen, Garching or Berlin in Germany.
I do miss my hometown Vienna where I grew up since this afforded me the opportunity to become very passionate about opera and theater. However, I also miss living by the ocean as I thoroughly enjoy being on the water - the underlying reason for my passion for ships.
Presently, the public area of this website mainly features videos on ships presented in an encyclopedic manner. For now this website is limited to that topic, other content might be added in the future. Copyright issues are just one of many reasons why I decided not to add music to any of the video clips presented on this website.
Please contact me if you cannot retrieve a link I may have sent you. It might be a link to the not publicly accessible section of my website.
I am very honoured to host supplemental video material friends of mine have surrendered for publication on this website. These clips are explicitly marked as 'guest contributions'.
