For ten years he worked at Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Labs where he was co-inventor of the 'yo-yo despin mechanism'; see Wikipedia/ Yo-yo de-spin. For a really cool animation see the Rover mission to Mars,, and watch little weights on wires spin off at 1 minute, 36 seconds.

Wells’ previous book was Apocalypse When?: Calculating How Long the Human Race Will Survive, Springer 2009, which can be purchased at Events since 2009 indicate increasing risks that require the present sequel.
