Work History

Over the years, he has spent time studying variations of stars. Photoelectric, and CCD photometry and spectroscopy and analysis of light and radial velocity curves of neglected eclipsing binary systems. Synthetic light curve techniques. Star spot modeling in close binary systems, Studying Contact and Near Contact Solar-type Eclipsing Binaries and Eclipsing Binary Stars as tests of Relativistic Gravity. Mr. Samec has gone on to teach on a variety of subjects in his interest spectrum. He spent time working in schools teaching physics, astronomy 1 and 2, as well as mechanics. Before that, he was the public observatory director in a planetarium at Butler University in Indianapolis.[1]
