Geophysicist to Astronaut

Last week I gave a presentation to ninth graders in Lovington, NM. It dealt with my scientific career and astronaut ambitions. Hopefully I showed the kids that science is fun and a great way to see the world. They are lucky to be in New Mexico, which is fast-becoming a hub of the commercial spaceflight revolution.

This was the second time I've given a presentation of this kind remotely via Skype; the first was to my high school last year. I've had a busy year with my FMARS and MDRS missions, founding of A4H, and near-completion of the UND Space Studies degree (more on that in the next post).
