Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador Ron Rosano Ron Rosano grew up during the height of the Apollo era and has closely followed NASA's missions in space since then.

Although Ron didn't choose a career in a astronomy-related field, he was active with the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers in the 1990's and built a 10" Dobsonian telescope with John Dobson in 1993.

He began working with The Astronomical Society of the Pacific's Project Astro in 1995, and since then has conducted astronomy lessons with many hundreds of first through twelfth graders as part of Project Astro and, since 2008, as a volunteer with NASA's Solar System Ambassador program.

Ron works for a small real estate company, and when he's not spending time with his wife and kids, he pursues interests in music, photography, hiking, and backpacking. He has a reservation to fly into space with a company offering suborbital spaceflights and hopes to make the trip in late 2015.
