We are now ready to see the world's only permanent outpost in space come into its full potential as a unique platform for scientific research and technology development. That's why I work on the International Space Station Program.
I have always believed that my calling in life is to do what I can to make ours a spacefaring civilization. That’s why I studied aerospace engineering in college, worked as a NASA intern over three summers, take what I learned as a systems analyst for the intelligence community to help solve problems for the space program, and now work in the ISS National Laboratory Office.
The International Space Station is a key step for humanity in our progression to settling the stars.

The ISS is our only permanent outpost in space and is teaching us what we need to know to live there safely.
We are now ready to see the ISS come into its full potential, though, as a unique platform for scientific research and technology development. Nowhere else can we provide a sustained microgravity environment for ...
