Polsintoovly

Polsintoovly, the Bird God, joined the Windows team in May of 1999. Also known as Chris Gleason, this graduate of the University of Michigan became well versed in world mythology while working on the mythology section of the site. He soon transformed into Polsintoovly, but continues to work for the project.

Polsintoovly spends the long hours keeping the Headline Universe section up to date. He's also the author of several constellation pages and is currently working on updating our missions section. He can occasionally be spotted answering Ask a Scientist questions if they're easy.

"Working for Windows to the Universe has given me the chance to become one with my fellow birds. Polsintoovly will live on forever!" He says.

In his spare time, Polsintoovly likes to play golf and video games. He's a big sports fanatic and plans to start a new sport called bird racing. He also likes to sleep.
