Welcome to
Wayne Herbert's Website
"Fact, Fiction, and More"

Welcome to my web page.  This page started as a required project while I attended Rice University. I keep it updated so that 5,000 years from now, when anthropologists unearth archive tapes from my ISP, I will be remembered... a shot at immortality, or at least an opportunity to be mentioned in someone's Ph.D. thesis that will be filed away for another 5,000 years. 

I have returned from Singapore after eight great years.  Singapore is a great place to live with excellent infrastructure and a wonderful cultural scene… not to mention golf in Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia.  Check out my photos, below.  However, it was time to come back.  We’ve got family and friends to return to, and the parameters on which I founded my business in Singapore have changed.  Good to be back.

If you have comments or suggestions, please email me at Wayne Herbert's Email.

About The Background On This Page

The background picture on this page is a screened back scan of Colonel J. P. Stapp in a rocket sled as he is braking from an extremely high acceleration.  The vehicle he used for these tests consisted of a pilot’s seat, which was bolted onto a sled. The sled sat very close to one end of 3550 feet of railroad track. Behind the sled was another similar vehicle,  which when ignited, released an enormous 40 000 pounds of thrust. Previous to this maximum test he had strapped himself onto this machine no less than twenty eight times. The highest speed attained during these tests was 421 miles per hour (673 kilometers per hour). At the other end of this railroad track waited a water barrier into which he crashed to slow him down from top speed to zero in less than 1.5 seconds. During that maximum test he hit the water barrier at an amazing 927 feet per second - nine tenths the speed of sound! His body sustained the force of between 35 and 40 g’s for a split second.
