Philip Evans has been interested in astronomy since the late 1950's. He holds a BS in Computer Science, a BA in Web Design, and an MA in Theology. Philip has worked on several military Satellite projects as well as the Pioneer 11 and Viking projects at JPL. He worked as a team member on the Voyager Project in Telemetry and Command Operations.
