Biographical Information:


Photo of Ambassador William Higgins I'm an engineering physicist. My job is working on radiation safety at Fermilab, the particle accelerator near Chicago, but in my spare time I love to learn about spaceflight, astronomy, and planetary science, and to share my knowledge with others through speaking and writing. Our age will be remembered for centuries, for millennia, as the one that began to explore the Moon and planets with spacecraft. We are all part of this adventure.
