He Goes To Great Lengths
Kevin is a retired international award winning astrophysicist, having worked as a consultant with NASA, the Chandra X-Ray Observatory launched on the space shuttle with the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and other ground-based observatories. Kevin won national and international awards in his field, and did some work with Brookhaven National Laboratory. Besides the numerous workshops he's presented over the years at libraries, observatories, and science centers, some noteworthy ones include those made at Tufts University, State University of New York at Stony Brook, the NSTA National Convention, AAAS Breakfast with Scientists, and the National Parks Service. While Kevin is supposed to be retired, he's as busy as ever! While his scientific background is stellar and his mind is definitely in the stars, he's also one of the most down to earth and accessible guys you'll ever have the chance to meet. Kevin goes to great lengths to communicate his passion for the amazing world of outer space in terms that all ages can understand. He's lectured widely, built telescopes and observatories, and consulted with NASA, but his favorite thing to do is to share his contagious enthusiasm and knowledge with the public. Astronomy is more than a profession for Kevin, it's his love and it shows in all he does.
