Rob Gilchrist

Rob was  born one cold winter day in late 1963. He entered the Northshore school district in September of 1969 where he excelled at snacks and recess. After graduating from the sixth grade he decided he wanted to see the world and joined the merchant marines.  After more than twenty seven years in the merchant marines he decided that it was time to settle down so he moved to the Coast of Norway where he took up Downhill Skiing. He won a silver medal in the Downhill at the 1976 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck. After retiring from competition in 1984, he began working on an idea of his that is now widely known as cold fusion. After a terrible exploding beaker accident he again decided it was time to take it easy and joined the Alaskan Secret Service...
