Welcome to my site. My name is Sebastian Feles. I am a scientist, inventor and maker. I love science especially empirical research and I am a huge space enthusiast. I see myself as a technological and sociological utopian in a post-utopian world. For me, the pursuit of knowledge and insight are the path to a bright future, and with rationality, evidence, and faith in progress, this path can be taken.
I started with an apprenticeship as a biological technical assistant and later became a specialist in molecular biology, genetic engineering and biomedicine. I then studied biotechnology and genetic engineering at Technical College Cologne, Germany.
I work and do research in gravitation and radiation biology at the German Aerospace Center as a bio- and genetic engineer. Here I study the effects of micro- and hypergravity as well as ionizing X-rays and heavy ion radiation on neuronal cells1. For this I develop, design, build and program experiments for parabolic flights, sounding rockets and ground reference experiments. I have worked on multi-week campaigns at heavy-ion particle accelerators in Germany (Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung, GSI), France (Grand Accélérateur National d’Ions Lourds, GANIL) and Japan (Hōshasen Igaku Sōgō Kenkyūjo, NIRS). I have launched biological experiments developed by us into space with sounding rockets at ESRANGE in Sweden, 200 km north of the polar circle at -38 °C. Furthermore, I am involved in the ESA Astronaut training in the field of gravitational biology.
I am the founder of Sebastian Feles – Asssorted Scientific Services a 3D printing and rapid prototyping company.
