Distinguished by over five decades of expertise in telecommunications protocols, encryption, physics, mathematics, computer science, and astronomy, Mr. McCanney is the proprietor of jmccanneyscience. Under this trade name, he publishes his written works, with 14 books already published and six more in progress to maintain the quality of his contributions to these diverse fields. He is also the host of the long-running radio show, the James McCanney Science Hour at the Crossroads, which has been airing for 24 years from WWCR in Nashville, Tennessee. Furthermore, he manages a series of websites that promote his products, including jmccwing.com, which showcases his patented wind-energy device known as the JMCC WING® Generator, producing environmentally friendly green hydrogen.

His contributions to the History Channel special “Apocalypse Now” and appearances on Japanese and Russian television broadcasts discussing Astrophysics topics have further solidified his reputation in the scientific community.
Mr. McCanney’s academic journey began with a Bachelor of Arts double major in physics and mathematics from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in 1970, followed by a master’s degree in nuclear and solid-state physics from Tulane University in 1975. Noteworthy achievements from his time at Cornell University include the discovery of the solar wind’s charged separation, leading to the development of his groundbreaking theory, the “Plasma Discharge Comet Model,” which reshaped scientific understanding of the solar system’s dynamics.
Looking ahead, Mr. McCanney plans to create a comprehensive archive of his 50 years of work in a library format and compile his six ongoing book projects into a catalogue for future reference and study.
