Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Earl Towson A retired aerospace engineer with a lifelong love of astronomy and space that enjoys working with young people. In the past he designed rocket sleds and helped us go into space; he helped build a stronger technical Navy and to win the cold war; he dreamed of the future and built computer models to plan for it. Now he comes with a crusade: to show that science is both fun and interesting and that the really good stuff is still ahead of us.
