Dawn Mission & Ceres updates from Dr. Marc Rayman.



Dr. Marc Rayman is not only a top rocket scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory but also a magnificent communicator. He is currently the chief engineer and mission director for Dawn, the first spacecraft ever targeted to orbit two extraterrestrial destinations, the giant protoplanet Vesta and dwarf planet Ceres. Marc combined his extensive training in physics with his lifelong study and passion for the exploration of space by joining JPL shortly after receiving his doctorate. His work there has spanned a broad range of planetary and astrophysics missions, including Deep Space 1 (DS1) and the Spitzer Space Telescope, as well as the development of interplanetary laser communications. One of Marc’s favorite hobbies is learning about the space activities of all space-faring nations. He has built an extraordinary personal collection of information (and memorabilia) from over 40 nations, featured in an amusing video tour geared for space buffs. He is very active in outreach, instilling in the public the power of science and the thrill and wonder of interplanetary adventures through his acclaimed DS1 and Dawn blogs and his popular public speaking.

Moonwards cool news & updates from Kim Holder.

Kim rediscovered space after searching for a new direction in life in 2013, when she recovered from a long-term fatigue condition. Since then she has taught herself as much as she can about space, and especially the Moon. She loved space exploration growing up, and when she saw the successes SpaceX was having, she felt hope again that space would open up in her lifetime, and a desire to be a part of that.

She applied her background as an artist and writer, and came up with the concept for Moonwards. She works full time on it, researching, designing the colonies, building the models and the website, writing about it, and working with collaborators.

In addition to her training at the Ontario College of Art, her training in Zen meditation and massage therapy mold her approach to considering our future in space. Her background causes her to focus on the long view, and the basics of human nature. She works on Moonwards with the goal of providing the public with a rich way to visualize space settlement, realistically, and to contemplate all it will mean.
