He Goes To Great Lengths
Will this national and international award-winning astronomer ever retire?! In addition to currently lecturing across our nation, Kevin has 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 and with Brookhaven National Laboratory. He has presented workshops and lectures over the years at libraries, public schools, observatories, and science centers, including such places as 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's 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. Whether he's lecturing, consulting, teaching people how to build telescopes or helping to build observatories, one of his favorite things to do is to share his contagious enthusiasm and knowledge of Astronomy. HIs love for it clearly shows up in all he does.
