Presentation Summary: We Are All Explorers
Since its beginning 240 years ago, the United States has been the Exploration Nation. For the past fifty-plus years, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has led the exploration of the worlds of the Solar System. Now the internet age allows citizens to participate in that exploration, from just enjoying the views to processing the pictures, to doing “citizen science.” This talk will review some of the current NASA missions and ways in which everyone can ride along on the adventure.
Ron is a life-long learner and is a formal and informal educator in a wide variety of settings. He is committed to sharing the wonders of nature from a scientific context. He is currently an Instructor for Bellevue College’s TELOS education program for retirees, teaching courses on the history of space exploration, planetary science and astrobiology. Since becoming a Solar System Ambassador for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, he has delivered more than 200 presentations to K-12 classrooms, retirement centers and professional associations.
