Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Larry Wiss Larry Wiss' interest in Space exploration was stirred in childhood hearing radio signals from Sputnik. Watching Neal Armstrong step onto the Moon was also very impactful. Recent work researching/creating demos for the ISS education program Star Station One provided opportunities to learn about Space science and human exploration firsthand. He's toured the Space Shuttle and Space Station preparation/launch facilities at Kennedy and Johnson Space Centers and JPL; and participated in hands-on workshops at Astronaut training facilities. Larry feels that, "My work with NASA has heightened my interest in Space exploration, being a SS Ambassador provides an ideal platform for sharing my enthusiasm and will hopefully inspire others to continue reaching towards the stars."

Larry is employed as a Communications Officer at the University of Hawaii. He's a member of the Hawaiian Astronomical Society and volunteers with robotics education programs. He enjoys experiencing moments of micro-gravity through his hobby of skydiving.
