Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador John Cowens The Ambassador to the Solar System program has allowed me to teach students, teachers, parents, and other community members about space. This program enhanced my teaching performance of earth and space science from an integrated point of view. It has been an honor representing JPL by educating the public about our solar system and beyond. I will always remain loyal to JPL and will never stop presenting new information to the public about new discoveries of our Universe.

I'm now using a new 12.5" newtonian reflector telescope to help with SSA presentations! Larger crowds are attending my presentations.
