Who are we? We are YOU!

We are dads, moms, grandparents, teachers, kids, scientists, engineers, and space geeks. We are those who reach out into the Universe to seek answers to those deep questions: Where did we come from, and are we alone?

We are wowed and awed by the discovery of new things, the mysteries of science, the innovations of technology, the bravery of astronauts, and by the stunning images sent back to us from other worlds.

We know that space exploration is vital to humankind...and it is just plain fun!

Space, similar to many others, has had a mystifying effect on me since I was very young. To know there are worlds to be explored, potential ... more »

Kevin J. DeBruin saw the movie October Sky as a 10 year-old boy and knew he wanted to design spaceships when he grew up. He faced rejection all along the way, but he never gave up.

Kevin grew up in Kaukauna, WI, a small town of just south of Green Bay. Kevin struggled with math in middle school, but he dedicated extra time outside of class to ensure he learned the material.

I am in a perpetual state of awe at how our insignificant species went from figuring out how apples fall down to landing on our nearest satellite with a computer as powerful as my TI-84, all a few milliseconds "before midnight." Currently, I am pursuing studies in astrophysics but a career in politics. I would like to further human knowledge and keep our place in ... more »
