Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Mark Sparling Growing up in Southern California Provided many opportunities to learn about space and space exploration. In High School I was interested in Physics and Computers. I attended some classes at Pasadena City College including the Astronomy class. We met in an old observatory that had been used by many famous Scientists including Albert Einstein. I was Graduated from California Polytechnic University in Mechanical Engineering and have used the skills I learned to provide air conditioned comfort to large building complexes. My family relocated to Syracuse in 1995. As a Solar System ambassador I enjoy sharing information about space exploration and the technology that allows us such an expanded view of our Universe.
