Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Ray Warren Ray Warren is an Ambassador from Longmont, Colorado. Ray grew up in Illinois and like so many youth, was sure that he wanted to be an astronaut. He scrap booked all the articles he could find in newspapers and magazines, on each of the manned Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions. Another hobby was building scale model rockets. Ray received a lowered grade when he turned in a model of the Vostok rocket for his geometry project which was to demonstrate geometric shapes. The teacher thought it was a store bought plastic model (when confronted, the teacher marveled and gave full credit).

Ray is currently employed in the computer industry and teaches computer applications and programming at a local community college in the evenings. Ray is an active member in the Longmont Astronomical Society and Longmont Amateur Radio Club. Ray served as shuttle driver to the 90 inch Jelm telescope near Laramie, Wyoming at the annual Weekend Under the Stars (WUTS). He also participated in a scheduled Amateur Radio contact for school children with astronaut Jim Voss who was aboard the International Space Station.
