Welcome to olidax.com
Below you will find some of my leisure projects. Most of them are programmed in XHTML/CSS. Some of them are using a CMS system (phpwmcs, joomla). Beside to webprogramming I’m interesting in space exploration and I am a science fiction afficionado. Style Switcher designed for the Smashing Magazine Contest.
ACCESS Mars (Team project ISU SSP09)
ACCESS Mars - Assessing Cave Capabilities Establishing Specific Solutions, was one of 3 team projects of ISU's (International Space University)
Summer Studies Program 2009. 56 students from 25 countries have undertaken the challenge of developing a mission architecture for an initial settlement
on Mars by assessing the feasibility of cave habitation as an alternative to proposed surface-based solutions. As part of the team I worked on
society issues (how to convice public to support such an mission) and in the design team.

Style Switcher Contest
AustroMars was a high fidelity analogue
Mars simulation which took place in April
2006 at the Mars Desert Research Station
(Utah). Therefore a own website was created
(not longer online). Integration of
AustroMars website into the ÖWF
website. Additionally all AustroMars data
are available at the AustroMars Science
Archive. Therefore I created the
PolAres Programme Redesign 2008
PolAres is an interdisciplinary
programme to develop strategies for the
human-robotic interaction procedures and to
emphasise planetary protection, in
preparation for a future human-robotic Mars
surface expedition scenario. PolAres is a

ÖWF Website. Redesign December 2008
Qasar Technologies has constructed the
first working prototypes based on
Alfvén waves, enabling corrosion
free and versatile applications in various
fields ranging from highly efficient space
propulsion to high tech coatings of
